As one that watched this bird at LHR regularly and also saw her at RAF Finningley airshows I have to say this picture is the most befitting epitaph for this aircraft. Spencer I envy you being able to put your name to this picture, Congratulations.

I have always liked Tu144 more than Concorde but after seeing this picture it is hard for me to feel so again. (Ali Aminzadeh)

The only time progress in aviation went backwards was with the withdrawal of the Concorde. I wish we get to transonic in near future.

This photo best illustrates whether Tu-144 was "copied" from Concorde or not. First notice the ogive-shaped wings, which in the serial 144 are actually a double delta. Secondly notice the engines far apart while in 144 close together. Thirdly notice a thickening of the body towards the back and the squarish shape it has there, also absent in 144. Perhaps last but not least is the "small" detail that the 144 was ready and flew before Concorde...

Just a fabulous machine, designed in the days before CAD. A wing that gets you on and off the ground at 180mph with no high-lift devices, and yet which transports you at 1300mph in cruise. Engine intakes that baffle supersonic air over a short distance so that the engines receive subsonic air - using just pressure waves in the intakes, a trim system that worked by shifting fuel around, and antilock braking systems that are now everywhere. This beautiful machine still embodies all the best about human endeavour and co-operation, expressed in its innovative and imaginative engineering, and operated by people that believed in it - bringing a thrill even to seasoned travellers like me. Always nice to see such a beauty surrounded only by airflow.

I imagine it was hard to take a photo of Concorde, and with this Spencer has truly shown her beauty. Bravo! Can I have this as a poster?
