Concorde is a supersonic passenger aircraft. It was an idea by companies operating both from France and the United Kingdom to offer supersonic flight. It first flew in 1969. 7 years later, it started service that lasted 27 years.
It flew mostly on transatlantic routes – from London’s Heathrow (British Airways) and the Paris port of Charles de Gaulle (Air France) to JFK Airports in New York and Dulles in Washington. It reached record speeds; the flight lasted half the time as traditional aircraft. However, there were high production costs and operation was very expensive. Therefore, they produced only 20 units.
Concorde’s last flight took place on November 26, 2003.
The Concorde G-BBDG supersonic passenger aircraft was a test model for British Airways. For several years it was used on test flights and never entered service. Over time, it began to be used as a base of spare parts for the other craft that were in service. Since 2003, the aircraft has been exhibited at the Brooklands Museum (Weybridge).
The Concorde brick kit is accurately mapped and uses as many as 455 parts. Using high-quality stickers to reproduce the markings on the plane, this model will really please those designers who like details in their kits. The high quality of this set means that the stickers do not wear out over time or when playing with the baby’s hands. The plane has a fully operational landing gear. When extended, the wheels can turn. The rudder direction is also movable.
