I have recently been reading about the Concorde and the Crash. It was not a single point of failure, It was a combination of a Maintenance errors on the Concorde landing gear, over filled fuel tanks (Against the manual), The flight crew was under time pressure (did not wait to burn off taxi fuel), The Flight Engineer shut down a good engine without telling the pilots and the aircraft was overweight. It was just the FOD that day on the runway that made all the other factors matter.
