  • Answer: No it will not, in fact it will never fly again. The aircraft was totally withdrawn from service in 2003 and all remaining examples are in museums.

    It could not be put back into the air, even if a sample could be bought from a Museum and you could afford to run and maintain it, as the makers have withdrawn all engineering support after British Airways and Air France stopped Concorde services
  • Answer: Concorde has 10 landing wheels - how many internal "wheels" is any ones guess
  • Answer: Concorde flew at Mach 2.2 - which is 2.2 times the speed of sound (2,162 kilometres per hour) not sure if that it fully loaded or empty though.
  • Answer: First supersonic passenger-carrying commercial airplane. It was built jointly by British and French manufacturers and was in regular service from 1976 to 2003. Its maximum cruising speed was 2,179 km (1,354 mi) per hour, more than twice the speed of sound. A London - New York flight took less than four hours on the Concorde, but financial losses on the plane finally led both the British and French airlines to withdraw it from service.
    A consortium of British and French engineers.
    Concorde was a supersonic passenger jet. It was something of a vanity project for the UK and France who jointly developed Concorde. The British wanted to call it Concord but the French insisted upon the addition of a French letter.
  • Answer: The Concorde was the brainchild of a group set up by Anglo- French interests to research the viability of a super-sonic airliner and, if possible, build one. Never give blank cheques to boffins. They think possible and viable mean the same. It was a magnificent aircraft but viable,no. British Airways and Air France ordered 6 each, knowing full well there would be no re-order. It was doomed for the scrap heap from the start. It was an incredibly expensive and risky experiment that it was not a viable,cost effective means of building airliners. But they proved it could be done ,a spirit I for one have a great admiration for
  • Answer: She was built a little before 1969. :)
  • Answer: The speed of Concorde is faster than the speed of sound that is whyit also termed as super sonic plane. The speed of Concorde is about1155 knots (2140 km/h or 1334 mph), more than twice the speed ofconventional aircraft.
  • Answer: Concorde is special because it was the fastest passenger plane ever. It flew at Mach 2. It was made together by more than 5 different countries.
  • Answer: yes until it crashed and it cost a lot on fuel
  • Answer: In October of 2003. It is now in an air travel museum in scotland.
  • Answer: 4x Rolls-Royce Olympus 593 engines with afterburner
  • Answer: It is a super fast plane. Only 20 were made. It was made by britin and france. There was only one crash, in 2000, and they retired in 2003.
  • Answer: It was an international development of a faster than the speed of sound, commercially flown aircraft. Unfortunately the whole program crashed when 1 of the aircraft crashed on take-off
  • Answer:
    At heights of up to 60,000 feet (over 18,000 meters), the Concorde cruised at around 1,350 mph (2,170 km/hr) - more than twice the speed of sound. It could make the trip from London to New York in less than three-and-a-half hours, cutting the time of a typical flight in half. With the five-hour time difference, in local time, the Concorde would land before it took off. A British Airways Concorde made the fastest Atlantic crossing, flying from New York to London in two hours and 53 minutes. On January 21, 1976, Concorde jet planes took off simultaneously from London Heathrow Airport and Orly Airport outside Paris, in the first commercial supersonic flights. The Concorde was never a great commercial success, and its first fatal accident - caused by a burst tire that ruptured a fuel tank and caused a fire and engine failure - resulted in the deaths of 113 people and marked the beginning of the end for the air service. It made its last regular commercial flight on October 24, 2003.
