Concorde Air France’s inaugural Flight Paris – Quebec

On July 14, 1984, a national holiday in France, the Concorde in Air France colors took precisely 3 hours 36 minutes to connect Paris to Quebec, including 2 hours 33 minutes at supersonic speed. A stopover that it is making for the first time in its history.

50,000 people came to the “Québec – Jean-Lesage” international airport to take advantage of a rare chance to see – and hear – the legendary supersonic Concorde, which came to mark the 450th anniversary of the arrival of Jacques Cartier in Canada .
