The Concorde

The Concorde celebrated the fifth anniversary of its last commercial flight this past weekend. It’s capable of flying from “London to New York in just 3.5 hours.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

These and other features permitted Concorde to have an average cruise speed of Mach 2.02 (about 2,140 km/h or 1,330 mph) with a maximum cruise altitude of 18,300 metres (60,000 feet), more than twice the speed of conventional aircraft.
