Concorde was a British-French supersonic passenger jet that flew until 2003. Flying on Concorde was seen as a status symbol for many who aspired to be one of her passengers. The aircraft had a maximum speed which was more than twice the speed of sound. A typical flight from London to New York took less than three and a half hours. Concorde was withdrawn from flight on 24 October 2003.
