Concorde 002

No visit to the Fleet Air Arm Museum would be complete without going on board Concorde 002. Following some thirteen years of development Concorde 002 was the fist British Concorde to take to the skies, taking off from Filton, Bristol on April 9th 1969. (Concorde 001 took off from Toulouse France on March 2nd 1969).

This photo was taken on 4th March 1976, of test pilot Brian Trubshaw to comemorate the last flight of Concorde 002.
