50 years since the First Flight of Concorde 001 (1969-2019)

On Sunday March 2, 1969 at 3:38 p.m. the Prototype Concorde 001 registered F-WTSS took off from the Toulouse-Blagnac runway for its first flight. It lasts 29 minutes. The crew is made up of pilot André Turcat, co-pilot Jacques Guignard, flight engineer Henri Perrier and flight engineer Michel Rétif. Thousands of spectators came to witness this unique event. In October 1969, he broke the sound barrier. In November 1970, he passed Mach 2.

An exceptional aircraft, Concorde is above all a human adventure that has become a myth. The first and only supersonic civil transport aircraft, it is the result of a Franco-British collaboration, from which its name comes. source www.toulouseweb.com

In commemoration of "50 years of the first flight of Concorde 001", Historiaphil, in collaboration with Air France cabin crew, have designed a series of aerophilatelic covers carried on board the Air France Airbus A380 first flight Paris (France) - Atlanta (USA).
