EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures a momentous occasion in aviation history - the Concorde taking off from Heathrow Airport in 1976. The sleek and futuristic Anglo-French supersonic passenger plane, with its unmistakable delta wings and powerful engines, is seen gracefully leaving the ground as it embarks on another high-speed journey. What makes this image even more special is that the aircraft featured, G-BBDG, never actually flew in service with British Airways despite wearing their iconic livery. This adds an intriguing layer of mystery to an already captivating scene. The Concorde was a marvel of engineering and design, pushing the boundaries of what was thought possible for commercial air travel. Its ability to fly at twice the speed of sound made it a symbol of prestige and luxury for those lucky enough to experience a flight aboard this groundbreaking aircraft. As we look back on this moment captured by Mary Evans Picture Library, we are reminded of the excitement and wonder that surrounded the Concorde during its time in operation. It truly was a testament to human ingenuity and innovation in transportation history.
