The First Transatlantic Flight

Concorde prototype 001 took off on September 4th, 1971 from Toulouse, France, at the start of a sales and demonstration tour of South America. The tour was to mark her first transatlantic flight. The 'big white bird' flew over the Atlantic to Rio, via Sal in the Cape Verde Islands, to Cayenne in French Guiana. From there she took off to São Paulo, where the plane became the main attraction of the 'France 71' show, before finally returning home Toulouse on 18th September.
