Concorde

Concorde flew faster than the speeed of rotation of the earth. It was like a time machine. If the plane left London at 10.30am it arrived in New York at 9.30am the same day. The invention of Concorde was a huge step forward in aviation.

Just twenty years after the sound barrier was first broken Concorde ws designed and built to carry 100 passengers at Mach 2, faster than a speeding bullet, in comfort across the Atlantic. From the cockpit 11 miles above the gorund, the pilots could see the curvature of the earths surface. Apart from spy planes no one flew higher.
