EDITORS COMMENTS
September 12, 1968: A Historical Moment in Aviation History - Concorde 002, G-BSST, Leaves the Assembly Hall at Filton This iconic photograph captures a significant moment in aviation history as Concorde 002, registration number G-BSST, leaves the assembly hall at Filton, near Bristol, England, for the first time. The date was September 12, 1968, and the world was on the brink of witnessing a new era in air travel. The Concorde supersonic passenger jet, a marvel of engineering and design, was the brainchild of the British and French governments and the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) and Aérospatiale. Concorde 002 was the second of two prototypes built, and its first flight would take place just over a year later, on March 2, 1969. In this image, we see Concorde 002 emerging from the assembly hall, its sleek, futuristic design on full display. The aircraft's distinctive delta wing shape, large engines, and streamlined body are all evident, hinting at the incredible speeds it would soon reach. The excitement and anticipation are palpable as the team at Filton prepares for the next stage of testing and development. The Concorde project represented a groundbreaking collaboration between two nations and a significant investment in the future of air travel. This photograph serves as a reminder of the innovation, determination, and passion that went into bringing this iconic aircraft to life. As we look at this image, we are transported back in time, to a moment when the future of aviation was just beginning to take shape. The Concorde would go on to set numerous speed records and captivate the world with its supersonic capabilities, leaving an indelible mark on the history of air travel.
