When Concorde first took to the skies, she epitomized a brave new world of scientific and technological innovation, of European co-operation and space age sophistication. The most advanced passenger aircraft ever built, she was both of and ahead of her time.

Scotland’s Concorde

Scotland’s Concorde, Golf-Bravo Oscar Alpha Alpha, was the first of her kind to go into service with British Airways, in 1976. 8,064 flights later, she came to rest at the National Museum of Flight in East Fortune after the Concorde fleet was decommissioned in 2003. You can find out more about her in our Explore section.
