The Britsh prototype Concorde from 1969 still looks modern today. 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. She's powered by 4x Bristol Siddeley Olympus engines with reheat giving a range of 2,205 miles and top speed of M2.2. Exhibited in Hall 4 at the FAAM, Yeovilton (Canon 50D + Sigma 10-20 EX DG HSM)
