Issue Name: 30 Years Since Concorde's First Flight to Bahrain
Producer: Buckingham Covers
We produced a series of 5 covers to mark the 30th Anniversary of Concorde's maiden flights. This is the first cover in the series, commemorating the first Concorde passenger flight to Bahrain.
The magnificent cover has both a stamp and label from our first Concorde sheet and a complete set of the 1969 stamps issued for Concorde's first flight. It is illustrated with a superb painting by Frank Wootton, one of the greatest aviation artists of all time. There are 10 different Concorde stamp label designs. We offered sets of 10 covers using each label or the choice to buy just one (our choice). A limited number were personally autographed by John Cochrane, the 1969 Concorde Test Pilot.
The Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde is a French-British turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner that was operated from 1976 until 2003. It had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound at Mach 2.04, with seating for 92 to 128 passengers.
