Concorde 40th Anniversary Models
21 January 2016 marked the 40th anniversary of the first commercial flights by Concorde and the start of an era of luxury supersonic passenger travel.
At 11.30am a British Airways and an Air France aircraft departed Londons Heathrow Airport together, flying to Bahrain and Rio respectively. With her unmistakable appearance and thunderous Rolls Royce Olympus engines, she instantly captured attention wherever she flew and remains a much-loved icon more than a decade after she was retired.
Our commemorative models, hand-carved from solid mahogany and painted in 30 coats of enamel for a pristine finish, depict Concorde G-BBDG in her BA Negus livery with her nose gear either raised or in the lower take-off/landing position.
At 1:100 scale, each is a substantial 25 long with a wingspan of 10.
