In January 1976, Air France and British Airways took air transport into the supersonic era. "Concorde" is a celebration of this legendary aircraft and icon to a whole generation. With its exceptional format and full-page photography, this book provides an account of a prodigious aeronautic enterprise and of the technical and human skill needed to ensure that this extraordinary aircraft saw the light of day. The author tells the behind-the-scenes story of an airliner, the like of which we will never see again: interviews with famous personalities, secrets only the mechanics knew, the experience of co-pilots and air hostesses reveal little-known aspects of Concorde and life on board.
