No "superior technology" has come out of GB since about 1950. - and that may be stretchng it. There have been a few "good ideas" since

I might be wrong but I thought Concorde started flying after 1950. Though then again the Septics didn't like the noise, or was it a classic case of "Not Invented Here" syndrome?

It was a fast plane, but a poor design. They spent wads of money to build and maintain them, then junked the entire fleet. It was noisy and very fuel inefficient. That forced the fares so high that they weren't able to compete with better planes from multiple countries.

"Bad design" is debatable. Supersonic planes are inherently inefficient, and the Concorde (which was actually a British-French design -- hence the name) was expensive from the get-go.
You can't say it wasn't able to compete with other planes, because the Concorde was the only supersonic transport. Even without the fatal accident, the Concorde would have eventually gone out of business, as there just weren't enough rich people or business who needed to zip to Europe and back.

US design never got past the mock-up stage. The bean-counters killed it based on cost-benefits. Simply put, it could never pay for itself and recoup the development money. As the Brits and the French discovered, the bean counters were right. Unlike Concorde, which had much or most of R&D paid for by taxpayers as a national ego thing, the US SST didn't get that much from Uncle Sam. (US Govt had other expensive things going on.) Without signed orders from the airlines, the financing just wasn't there. US doesn't have a 'national airline' like most countries. Most of the R&D seed money US Govt supplies for aircraft work is related to military requirements or to keep industrial base operational. Some of the military research can also be used on civilian side, like how large jet bombers/tranports led to large jet airliners.
Don't forget the knockoff of Concorde USSR put together. That was purely a national ego thing.

Concorde got banned from flying supersonic over nearly all land areas. That meant it couldn't actually use its speed to cut route times. i.e. 2hrs coast to coast of USA...
With such a restriction round its neck it was doomed.

Not that bad really as it was the first one..

What other supersonic airliners are those then?...

Don't read well, do you? The 747 kicked its butt.

The 747 goes about 600 mph top whack. Supersonic means greater than 768 mph so the 747 ain't a supersonic airliner.
You might have a military plane faster but you haven't got a passenger airliner faster.

I guess that answered my question (you don't read well).
The Concorde was not successful. The 747 is.

So what? The SST was canceled because it didn't make sense. You nitwits weren't bright enough to figure that out/

Don't you think these US apologists are a perfect example of the Dunning- Kruger effect?

It WOULD have made sense. For a limited market of people with money in a hurry IF they had allowed supersonic flight over land.
As it was, many routes were so restricted it offered no time advantages at all.

Probably crimps are the best solder-free connections.

Criomps are probably easier for d-i-y.
