EDITORS COMMENTS
This historic moment in aviation history was captured on the front page of the Illustrated London News in 1969, as Concorde, the world's first supersonic airliner, took to the skies for the first time. The Sud-Aviation airfield in Toulouse, France, was the site of this groundbreaking event, with Chief Test Pilot M. Andre Turcat at the helm. The 110-ton craft soared to an impressive altitude of 10,000 feet, marking a new era in air travel. With its sleek, futuristic design and ability to fly at twice the speed of sound, Concorde represented a major technological advancement. This photograph is a testament to the innovation and determination of the engineers, designers, and pilots who made this feat possible. Looking back, it's hard to believe that just over five decades have passed since this historic first flight. The Concorde would go on to make more history, including setting numerous speed records and revolutionizing transatlantic travel. This image is a reminder of the incredible progress that has been made in aviation, and the limitless possibilities that lie ahead.
