Following on with our History Hunters topic we are going to look at the history of Concorde.

The Concorde was a passenger aeroplane that could fly at twice the speed of sound. The plane was built jointly by British and French aircraft manufacturers. It was flown by British Airways and Air France.

Concordes were regarded as incredible aircraft that were beautiful to watch and were the result of great engineering and design. However, Concorde aircraft did not make money for the companies that flew them. Because of this, as well as a terrible crash in 2000, the Concordes were retired in 2003.

Here are a few webpages that will give you some more information on this amazing aeroplane.


Your task today is to do your own research on Concorde and complete the Concorde Specifications fact file.
