    09.01.20: We have started our topic learning this week with wonderful learning about the 1960s. We have undertaken an overview tour of the decade, and then we went to 1969 to learn about the test flight of Concorde. 

     

    Here are some of the amazing facts that we learnt: 

    • Concorde had a take-off speed of 220 knots (250 mph) and a cruising speed of 1350mph – more than twice the speed of sound. Its landing speed was 187 mph.
    • Flights consisted of nine crew members: two pilots, one flight engineer and six flight attendants. Concorde used to fly 100 passengers (40 in the front of cabin and 60 in the rear cabin).
    • The last commercial Concorde‘s flight was from New York to Heathrow on October 24, 2003. By the time these flights finished, it was the last aircraft which had flight engineers as part of the crew.
    • During its lifespan, Concorde had over 50,000 flights. 2.5 million passengers flew supersonically with Concorde. It has to be mentioned that oldest Concorde's passenger was 105 years old Eva Woodman.
    • One of the most fascinating Concorde‘s flight was the first round the world flight by a BA Concorde on November 8, 1986. An airliner flew 28,234 miles in 29 hours 59 minutes.
