EDITORS COMMENTS
"This historic photograph captures the moment of Concorde 002's maiden flight from Filton Airfield on 9 April 1969. The Concorde supersonic jet, registration G-BOAC, is seen taking off into the clear blue sky, leaving a trail of vapor in its wake. The Concorde project, a collaboration between the British and French governments, represented a groundbreaking achievement in aviation technology. With its distinctive delta-wing design and sleek, streamlined body, the Concorde was capable of reaching speeds over twice the speed of sound, making it the fastest commercial aircraft in history. The maiden flight of Concorde 002 was a significant milestone in the development of this revolutionary aircraft. The test flight program, which included numerous trials and evaluations, would continue for several years before the Concorde entered commercial service in 1976. During its operational life, the Concorde fleet carried over 2.5 million passengers across the Atlantic Ocean, connecting cities on opposite sides of the Atlantic in just over three hours. This photograph is a testament to the ingenuity and determination of the engineers, designers, and pilots who brought the Concorde to life. It serves as a reminder of the incredible advancements in aviation technology and the enduring allure of supersonic flight." Date: 9 April 1969 Location: Filton Airfield, Bristol, United Kingdom Aircraft: Concorde 002 (G-BOAC) Event: Maiden Flight Image Reference: Mary Evans Picture Library / Alamy Stock Photo
