An in-depth study of not just Concorde, but also the Tupolev TU-144, the only two supersonic transports that made it into production and service. Alongside the fascinating development of both these aircraft, he also examines the many projects in Britain, France and the U.S. that never made it beyond the drawing board. A full account of the first Concorde accident (25 July 2000 - Paris) is also given here.
