First flown in 1969, Concorde was the first supersonic aircraft to go into commercial service in 1976 and made her final flight in 2003. She was operated primarily by British Airways and Air France. British Airways' Concordes made just under 50,000 flights and flew more than 2.5 million passengers supersonically. A typical London to New York crossing would take a little less than three and a half hours compared to around eight hours for a "subsonic flight." In November 1986 a Concorde flew around the world, covering 28,238 miles in 29 hours, 59 minutes.

Today, Concordes can be viewed at museums across US, including in New York, Seattle, and Washington D.C. However, there have been recent reports suggest that a Concorde may start operating commercially again. Through a series of key documents the book tells the story of how the aircraft was designed and developed, as well as ground-breaking moments in her commercial history.
