CELEBRATING THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST FLIGHT.
A brief history of Concorde
During the mid 1950s, Britain, France and the Soviet Union were all considering the development of supersonic transport. Following extensive research and testing, the work of the British Aircraft Corporation resulted in the Type 223, while the efforts of France's Sud Aviation produced the Super Caravelle. Both aircraft though designed independently, were similar in many ways, and in 1962 the two companies entered into partnership to manufacture Europe's first supersonic passenger plane together.
