***Limited Edition of 250***


In a formation that can scarcely be believed to be real, this photograph was taken on Christmas Eve 1985 to celebrate Concorde's 10 years of commercial service and the accumulation of 71,000 supersonic flying hours.

It features four British Airways Concordes in flight over the south coast. Bearing in mind that it cost more than £250,000 each just to get the aircraft off the ground, and it was taken from a Learjet with optically-corrected replacement windows, this could be the most expensive promotional photoshoot ever.


Framed, with British Airways 'To Fly, To Serve' crest, crew members' names, and signed by Captains Brian Walpole and Jock Lowe it is one of a Limited Edition of just 250, with numbered certificate. Measures 25x21".

*Perhaps NASA will correct us on that one, but we can't think of any others!

Adrian Meredith

Adrian Meredith has been an aviation photographer for more than 25 years and has won many prestigious awards. Whilst working as the senior in-house photographer for British Airways he made the suggestion of launching four Concordes in succession to create various airborne formation images. BA loved the idea but arranging for all four Concordes to be available at the same time presented quite a challenge! Adrian was also given the prestigious assignment of photographing the Queen Mother on Concorde to celebrate her 85th Birthday.

Concorde

Concorde made her first test flight on 2 March 1969, and 'went supersonic' on 1 October the same year. She then entered service with British Airways and Air France in 1976 and took her last commercial flight on 24 October 2003, having completed over 50,000 flights.

Limited Edition

Art prints and collectables are often produced as numbered limited editions, and are provided with certificates confirming their authenticity and position within the collection. This limited availablilty increases their value, making them more desirable. Take the opportunity to be one of only a few people in the world to own this model.
