The Concorde was one of the supersonic passenger jet airliners on service between 1976 and 2003. The plane was popular among entrepreneurs because of its ability to fly from London to New York in less than three and a half hours’ time reaching more than twice the speed of sound. More than 2.5 million passengers were flown throughout the period of 27 years.
Only 20 aircraft were produced during the time, and only 14 of them were used in the airline industry. Have you ever imagined yourself at the controls of Concorde – the most famous supersonic aircraft in the world? You have a chance to try the Concorde pilot chair in the only operational Concorde simulator in the world at the Brooklands Museum.
