The supersonic passenger airliner, Concorde had its service commencing in 1976 as a result of the Anglo-French government treaty, which lasted about 27 years. This weekend marked the fifth anniversary of the last commercial flight of the Concorde, which had a reputation of bridging London to New York in just 3.5 years. The Concorde is one of the most supersonic jets, which remains technologically advanced flying at a cruise speed of Mach 2.02, thanks to its four Olympus 593 MK 610 afterburning turbojets. The fastest ever Concorde flew for the last time and returned to the Intrepid Museum in NYC a few days ago.
