Concorde forever

This year marks a trio of golden anniversaries for the supersonic airliner: Concorde 001 took of for the first time from Toulouse, France, on 2 March 1969; 002, the first British-built Concorde, took of on 9 April 1969; and 001 went faster than the speed of sound (Mach 1) for the first time on 1 October 1969. The British/French co-developed airliner was famed for its beauty and speed of up to Mach 2.04, or 1,354mph. It continued to hurtle well-heeled passengers on scheduled flights between New York and London in just 3.5 hours, until it ceased service in 2003.
