Concorde aborts a landing at Leeds Bradford under a high crosswind - good view of the Bristol Olympus engines [originally designed for the TSR2] and the extraordinary power of the afterburners. The Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde was a turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner, a supersonic transport (SST). It was a product of an Anglo-French government treaty, combining the manufacturing efforts of Aérospatiale and the British Aircraft Corporation. First flown in 1969, Concorde entered service in 1976 and continued commercial flights for 27 years.
