The Concorde Story (Hardback)

Christopher Orlebar


This fully revised edition of "The Concorde Story", published to coincide with the anniversary of the first landing at Heathrow, is a complete history of Concorde. When commercial air services were launched in 1976, Concorde was hailed as one of the wonders of the technological world. Lavishly illustrated throughout, this new edition documents the early difficulties encountered on the way to commercial success as well as examining the tragic event at Gonesse in 2000. With a new section on the after-story of the aeroplane and a look at what the future holds for supersonic aircraft, this is the definitive book for all Concorde fans.
