5800 British Airways Concorde

Concorde

Scale: 1:350
Make: Model Power (The Airliner Collection)
Model #: 5800
Year: 1978
Name: BAC/Aerospatiale Concorde
Description: UK/France, British Airways
Tail number: G-BOAG

The most successful supersonic commercial airliner of all time, with supercruise capability. Only 14 were in service. One of it’s [many] unique features was the “droop nose”, which allowed for different positioning of the nose for different operations (take off, landing, cruising). It’s closest competitor was the strikingly similar Soviet Tupolv Tu-144, which never managed to gained the same amount of popularity. The Concorde was officially put out of service on 24 October, 2003.
