The ultimate aeroplane is commemorated in this detailed model plane. It rotates soundlessly in every direction on its base, and the cockpit tilts too! The iconic Concorde was first flown in 1969, and operated as the longest-running commercial supersonic jet between 1976 and 2003. It still holds the record for the fastest transatlantic airliner flight from New York JFK to London Heathrow, which took only 2 hours, 52 minutes, and 59 seconds from take-off to touchdown. This model celebrates a true icon of travel, style, and engineering.
