40th Anniversary of Concorde

British technology minister Anthony Wedgewood Benn announced at Toulouse on the first roll out of the French Concorde 001, that from now on the British aircraft would also be called Concorde. The "e", he said, stood for "excellence, England, Europe and Entente".

The overall shape, aerodynamics, flight controls, propulsion and auxillairy systems made Concorde a generation ahead of any other form of civil transport. Concorde became an icon of her age.
