Climbing into the moonlit sky and leaving the English coastline behind her, British Airways G-BOAF, the last production Concord built and last to fly, engages reheat to commence her ascent. At a cruising altitude of 58,000 feet and a speed of Mach 2.2 she will reach her New York destination in just over three hours.
Unquestionably the most beautiful commercial aircraft ever to enter service, during 27 years of flying passengers supersonically, Concorde earned a unique place in aviation history.
