Background Information on the Aircraft
The Concorde, a legendary supersonic airliner, left an indelible mark on aviation with its pioneering design and unparalleled capabilities. Born from collaborative British and French efforts, it took its maiden flight in 1976 and remained operational until its retirement in 2003.
Defined by its sleek frame, delta wings, and iconic droop-nose, the Concorde’s appearance was as distinctive as its performance. Powered by Rolls-Royce/Snecma Olympus 593 engines, the aircraft reached supersonic Mach 2 speeds, allowing it to cross the Atlantic Ocean in less than four hours.
