Summary A history of the legendary Concorde, the passenger plane that flew from the late 70s until 2003 at twice the speed of sound. Designed and built by French and British engineers, the Concorde was the ultimate in speed and luxury for a select group of global jet setters, and the birthplace of many breakthroughs in aviation science. Ultimately, it was not sustainable because of enormous fuel consumption and high-ticket prices.
