How It Works

Concorde’s final flight

On 26 November 2003 Concorde officially retired. Watch as this distinguished aircraft came in to land for the final time. Ever.

The second issue of How It Works goes on sale today. Also on this day in history onlookers enjoyed the magnificent spectacle of Concorde flying into Filton airport in the Midlands for her final voyage in 2003. After enjoying her first supersonic flight on 1 October 1969, Concorde went on to become one of the most recognisable aeroplanes in the world.
