I know what you mean. Probably not, just based on the number of times it's been said that it's going to and hasn't. Still hopeful though.

(Edited to make it less obvious what 'it' is)

Can't wait for this to happen.
Gives me hope that one day, some crazy crazy person might possibly get a Concorde back in the air...

To be fair, my memories of seeing the Vulcan suggest that anyone within the surrounding four counties will know when it happens!

Excellent news. It sounds like it might be ready just in time for the new cold war!
