Product description

Review

Concorde is one of the wonders of the modern technical world - the first commercially successful airliner capable of speeds in excess of Mach 2 (twice the speed of sound). This book, now in its fifth Edition, describes the history of supersonic flight, the development and operation of Concorde. It includes the story of the tragedy at Paris, the accident investigation and Concorde's restoration. There is also a look into the future of high-speed flight.
