The iconic nose of the British prototype Concorde shown in it's aerodynamic cruise mode, it lowered to increase visibility for take-off and landing. Making her maiden test flight on 09/04/1969 from Filton to Fairford by test pilot Brian Trubshaw, she pioneered supersonic passenger travel. She flew in to Yeovilton for preservation at the FAAM on 04/03/1976, opening to the public on 26/07/1976. Powered by 4 Bristol Siddeley Olympus engines with reheat giving a range of 2205miles (Canon 50D + Sigma 10-20)
