The Concorde

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This blog features design in the arty sense of the word more than anything. This post marks a small departure. The Concord is a design feat. Nobody can deny its pointy nose prowess. It is, in my opinion, a shame that the aircraft was retired to save costs. Indeed, the whole drive to manufacture super sonic aircraft came to an end with the demise of the Concord. These days, fleets are filled with either pregnant monsters or light fuel effieient incarnations of earlier planes in the case of Boeing. Here, then are some pictures that celebrate the only commercial rocket-driven metal bird ever to grace the sky.
