Prototype

by Jarvo J September. 01, 2011 5112 views

This plane was the second Concorde prototype and the first British one. For more pictures and information please click here [concordesst.com].

The sleekest passenger plane ever…

with a revolutionary drop-nose, shaped like a missile when in flight

capable of carrying passengers at an incredible 23 miles per minute

state of the art technology to fly it (for 1969)

and a rope ladder in case of emergencies!

I thought it was such a shame that they pulled these out of service, and keep us holed up in those slow and noisy planes for twice as long a time as it would take with these birds to cross the Atlantic! "Backwards" development just wouldn't cut it, one would think...

sometimes, the most advanced modern things become the deepest, obsolete history. i just think of the clunky apollo capsules and lunar landers they flew to the moon with... and we can't do anything similar with our modern ipads, mobile phones and internet pages.

Such an impressive-looking aircraft and I must say you've got some great looks at it here! Nice perspective and composition in #1! Thank goodness for the escape ladder ;))

The means of escape is a bit rudimentary when you consider the technology involved in the rest of the aircraft.. at the very least you would think you would be able to be beamed out in an emergency!

excellent and interesting series, this set looks very powerful, because of its size and of course the perspective and detail.
