First Flight . . .

A first day cover for the first flight of Concorde.  The set of stamps and cover were issued 3 March 1969.

  1. Nice cover and stamps. I didn't realize the Concorde was that old.

  4. Boy, 1969, huh? Seattle was to have built the US equivalent of the Concord at Boeing, but due to noise issues it was banned from all but a couple of US airports and their SST (Super Sonic Transport) program was dropped.

    I never saw one in flight but I heard one take off in 1997 while at Hampton Court. Did any one get used to that racket?

  5. What a nice cover, it really sets off the stamps. Concorde was ahead of its time.

  6. Was it as long ago as 1969? My goodness, how time flies. :) Such an elegant aeroplane and the stamps are beautiful.
