It's known that the concorde carries a white overall livery regardless of the airline to reduce the amount heat produced as a result of traveling at Mach 2.

Rare document of a Concorde in the old AF colorscheme, as it was never used for commercial flights, the first Concorde delivered to AF, F-BVFA, was already in the new AF Colorscheme

A very unique shot of the greatest airliner ever, with some classic mid-1970s airliners behind it.

Love the Datsun B210 billboard advert behind the tail.

A historical picture. The old Air France paint scheme looks good on the Concorde.

Nice shot. Although I agree with the Dannish mate (the old AF's solour scheme wears nicely the Concorde), it definitely seems old fashioned, even for the 70's. The Air France designers susbtancially improved it's look creating the blue-white-red stripes paint.
