Concorde: Technically the most advanced airliner ever to reach regular passenger service. Designed for a cruising speed of 1,350mph (Mach 2.05) or twice the speed of sound it can travel from Paris to New York in half the time taken by subsonic jets at a speed of Mach 2.2. At a cost of more than $60 million, Concorde was expensive and only nine production aircraft were on order for Air France (4) and British Airways (5) at the start of regular services.
