Cincom Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Bringing Supersonic Flight to Cincinnati
SPRINGDALE, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/13 -- As Cincom Systems
prepares to celebrate its 45th anniversary as the first modern
software technology company in Cincinnati, the company and its
employees remember another first: the first time commercial
supersonic flight landed in Cincinnati.
On this date in 1988, Cincom celebrated its 20th anniversary -- and
Cincinnati's bicentennial -- by bringing a British Airways Concorde
supersonic jet to Cincinnati, carrying 70 Cincom clients from 10
European countries. Cincom was the first U.S. company to charter the
plane for corporate purposes and it was the first time the high-speed
jet made a private landing in Cincinnati. In fact, it was the first

Cincom customer Boeing Canada, and NASA are working to develop a
quieter supersonic jet.

worldwide by solving complex business problems with its software and
services. For more information about Cincom's products and services,
