Concorde can surely claim to be the world’s favourite aircraft. Its sleek lines and glamorous design made it an icon recognised all over the world. Travelling at twice the speed of sound at 60,000ft, to fly Concorde was the dream of many and the regular pastime of the lucky few. The rich and famous graced its all-first-class cabins, some time and again; Sir David Frost notably undertook around twenty flights a year on Concorde for an average of twenty years.Photographer Adrian Meredith spent many years photographing Concorde from every conceivable angle. Here he has collated his artwork to present a full-colour account of this remarkable and memorable aircraft. Including information and photos from behind the scenes as well as significant milestones and detail on the passengers and personalities on board, this is a unique and beautiful photographic tribute. In this new and updated edition, ten years after Concorde's momentous last flight, Meredith looks at the potential of supersonic and hypersonic travel with fascinating speculations and images of what the future holds.
Concorde is the world’s most famous passenger transport aircraft and an icon of 20th century design. When British Airways and Air France withdrew their Concordes from revenue service in 2003 it marked the end of a unique era in supersonic air travel. In this full-color tribute to Concorde, Jonathan Falconer has scoured private collections, company archives and picture libraries to bring together a stunning selection of photographs portraying Concorde, from its ground-breaking first flights in 1969, through the glory days with British Airways and Air France, to its swansong in 2003. Many of these photographs are previously unpublished.
Through a collection of dramatic and informative photographs, supplemented by cutaway illustrations, this book highlights the agility and flexibility of this dedicated RAF aircraft. Throughout the course of its career, it has formed the backbone of the RAF across its many different theaters of operation. Utilized in a strike, anti-aircraft, air superiority, air defense, reconnaissance, electronic warfare and fighter-bomber capacity, this aircraft type has enjoyed an immensely varied career. Each aspect is illustrated in this photographic celebration. The book includes photographs by the author and a select number of other amateur photographers, with the vast majority of photographs _ never previously published _ taken low level around the hills and mountains of England, Scotland and Wales. This impressive new photographic publication will be presented in full colour and is sure to be prized as a collector's piece amongst fans of the genre.
