British Airways Concorde
Model No. G2BAW665
During the 1950s Britain and France were working on supersonic transport aircraft projects and eventually both countries merged their accomplishments in 1962 and the Concorde project was born. The first prototype rolled out in 1967 with the production aircraft entering service in 1976 with a 7 units being operated by British Airways and 6 by Air France. Concorde failed to sell to any other airlines because of its high price, low amount of passenger seats and noise issues. In later years it was recognised that the high take off and landing speeds and position of the fuel tanks was a safety risk should the tyers throw up any debris on the runway and although many warnings were given it was not until the loss of an aircraft with all on board that any notice was taken with the aircraft being withdrawn from service 3 years later. Despite these misfortunes it was a great engineering feat and an impressive collaboration between two countries and is still remembered as one of the most beautiful airliners ever built.
