Concorde is the world's most famous passenger transport aircraft and an icon of 20th century design. When British Airways and Air France withdrew their Concordes from service in 2003 it marked the end of a unique era in supersonic air travel. For this first large-format full-colour tribute to Concorde, Jonathan Falconer has scoured a wide range of private collections, company archives and media libraries in order to compile a stunning collection of colour photographs that portray Concorde from its first flights in 1969 to its swansong in 2003.
