Fantastic subject matter but, was this optimal film photography?? So Grainy.
Gavin Hughes
@ Diana, could be a bit over-sharpened. It's made the image sharp but also brought up the grain that was in the photo.
Superbe oiseau! On lui a coupé les ailes au premier accident dont il n'est même pas responsable. Quel dommage.

Au disparut de mult de pe firmament. Facesau concurenta Boieng.

Where is that at?

@MARC AVILES, Demi-honte! It was half British :-)

I was lucky to make a round trip CDG/JFK in 96 !

Ben moi j'ai eu la chance de faire un CDG/JFK/CDG dans le bel oiseau !
Are the black marks on the side of the fuselage and leading edge of wing from supersonic flight?

J'ai eu la chance de voyager sur cet appareil. Comme je suis un ancien membre de l'aviation mlitaire canadienne j'ai été enthousiasmé par cet avion . À l'extérieur le bruit était infernal mais à l'intérieur le bruit était moindre qu'à l'intérieur d'un Boeing 747.
Un merveilleux vol de Londdres à New York.

I hope that English is not your first language.

One can only dream of flying on the Concorde. I have Seen it many times, Not as big as I expected.
Still a class of its own.

The passenger windows were tiny, about the size of a paperback. From a distance, without any scalable objects in the view, this makes it looks larger than it really is. Only 2X2 seating, very narrow.

Empty weight was critical and windows are heavy. Compounding this, they had a large strength factor as loosing a window was considered a crit 1 failure due to the high cruising altitude and speed.
After this plane was de-commissioned there has never been another aircraft to come even close to what this aircraft represented in air travel,so sad.
Kirk Saxon
Boeing did try to make a similar aircraft but it never panned out. The Boeing 2707 which is now being restored at the Museum of flight in Seattle.
That is such a cool aircraft.

I had flight New York - Paris. Flight AF002 on 18th November 1978.
Great experience.

To all detractors, this picture was taken years before digital photography, so some "graininess" will be exhibited. Too bad that you chose to put down the photo, rather than enjoy the context.

They were beautiful a/c, and I did so enjoy watching them approach and land at Grantley Adams in Barbados. And the takeoff, .......

A dream that enden way too soon.
Had the distinct pleasure of landing a Cessna 210 at KJFK, while a Concorde took off on 'my' runway ahead of me, and a second Concorde was passing off my left wing, landing on the parallel. Unforgettable airplane!

My father (1925-2018) worked at Bristol in Structural Dynamics for 13 years - aeroelasticity, fluid dynamics structures, other horrible-sounding engineering complexities. He spoke fluent technical French and was back and forth across the Channel every few months to Toulouse working this beautiful aircraft - the only successful SST to exist. The Tupolov (sp) Tu144 just didn't last anywhere near as long and the Boeing (I work for them btw) 2707 was basically Powerpoint (before that existed of course) -ware.
Saw one (have to find pix of course) take off at San Diego airshow Browns field in late 80s' - almost as loud as a Space Shuttle Main Engine from 1/2 mile away. I've heard/felt both.
@ Lionel GAUDIN tout a fait d'accord avec toi, une décision bizarre
