  Yer an idiot.

  They were talking about NORMAL aircraft nearing the sound barrier.

  Bringing in the Concorde is about as stupid as it gets because anyone
with even the brains of an abject idiot like Donald J. Trump already
knows the Concorde is supersonic.

  So, spouting off about it in a thread about craft that are NOT
supersonic is superstupid.

  You page on page one yet, dipshit?

It depends on how you look at it. Records are almost always  
categorised. Concorde is/was in a different category. You can't  
really compare a station wagon doing 120 mph to an F1 going at  
over 200. Or an SR-71 to an X-15.

The effect of wind had to be removed somehow, by flying in both directions along a one mile course for example.
