Well a bit about concorde.
It stretches 1 foot during flight and can fly up to 60,000 feet. They could hold 125 but only have 100 so they can call it all first class. The cockpit has no EFIS and the nose goes down 60 degrees on take off and landing so they can see were they are going. About 12 major airlines ordered this plane but only 2 got them as the other 10 got out as of the oid crisis and would have made the plane cost to much.

For all sorts of statistics and facts, go to the website for British Airways (it even gives you the tire pressure).

www.british-airways.com

There are also lots of books out about the Concorde. Check your local library or amazon.com. One good one that I've read is "Flying Concorde" by Brian Calvert. However, there are many good books out there about the plane.
