Concorde Flying Supersonic MACH 2

This is a dramatic picture of Concorde G-BOAG flying at supersonic speed and is the only picture ever taken of Concorde flying at Mach 2, 1350 mph. This unique image was taken from a Tornado fighter jet, which rendezvoused with Concorde for just four minutes over the Irish Sea in April 1985. The RAF Tornado, rapidly running out of fuel, was struggling to keep up with Concorde. Cruising at Mach 2, Concorde stretches six inches from her normal 204ft length. Due to the heating of the airframe, she reaches 127 °C at the nose and trailing edges but the special ‘high-reflectivity’ white paint helps reflect and radiate heat.   Signed by Chief Concorde Pilot Mike Bannister.     Original photograph signed by Adrian Meredith   Special Limited Edition of just 250   Mount Size 26x19 Aprox
