Hi Christiaan

I have noticed that I missed a bit in my earlier reply, You will not find a CPU chip as you suggested ,instead an ALU was used with sub-routines it was a RISC before they were invented.].

a quick question : was it possible to have 2 supersonic runs on the same flight?
Meaning 2 separate Supersonic legs with a subsonic one in the middle for say tech reasons or just sonic bang suppression over a sensitive area ..
And another while I am here , on the LHR -Bahrein route when did supersonic flight actually started and where it ended...?

Regarding your first question I don't see any regular routing where this would have happened. I think there would not be any technical impossibility, though.
For the second part I guess somewhere above the Adriatic? But would be curious to know too...

Did the BAH to SIN route involve slowing down over India?
I saw a night T/O from BAH, impressive afterburner flames.

Probably the early marketing flight planning software had no means of calculating that.
I believe a double acceleration-deceleration on a single sector was considered to be too fuel thirsty.
There may have been other limitations such as managing the c.g.
