The End of an Era - Concorde Supersonic flights ends in October 2003

Airbus Industries passed the death sentence on Concorde when they said they could not back up the maintenance of the Concorde fleet. Air France ended service dramatically on the 14th May and British Airways announced that the final passenger flight would be on October 24th. Concorde first flew on 2nd March 1969. The test pilot was the famous Brian Trubshaw. Britian issued three stamps to honour this historic event.
