Concorde Stamp 1969

Growing up around 40 miles from London it is probably no surprise that the sky’s above contained many aircraft either landing or taking off en-route to somewhere wonderful. Concorde often flew overhead and despite being around 30,000 feet above in the air it was an incredibly noisy plane.

This Concorde stamp dates from 1969, and is shared today because on 26th November 2003 Concorde made its final flight over Bristol, around 90 miles from where I currently live.
