Space Shuttle, Boeing 747, and Concorde in the same photo Concorde Concorde was a British – French supersonic, turbojet-powered passenger airliner operated until 2003. At Mach 2.04 (1,354 mph or 2,180 km / h at cruise altitude), it had a maximum speed over twice the sound speed, with seating for 92-128 passengers. Concorde first flown in 1969, entered service in 1976, continuing to fly for the next 27 years. Concorde is one of only two commercially operated supersonic passenger aircraft; the other being the Soviet-built Tupolev Tu-144, which was operational for a short time in the late 1970s. Tu-144 made its maiden flight on December 31, 1968, three months before the Concorde. But, it suffered from reliability and engineering issues, and the 1973 Paris Air Show crash, restricted the viability for regular use. #memes #1970s #amazing #nobody
