The Concorde is a supersonic passenger aircraft. It reached a maximum speed of Mach 2.23 (2,405 km / h). With the Concorde, the flight time between Paris or London and New York was reduced to about half that of normal supersonic aircraft. The airlines British Airways and Air France used the Concorde from 1976 to 2003. It flew twice a day from Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle and London-Heathrow to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.
After a tragic accident in 2000, the operation of this supersonic aircraft was discontinued. The last Concorde flight from London Heathrow to the Aviation Museum in Filton took place on November 26, 2003.
The West African country Togo dedicates this block edition of stamps to the 35th anniversary of the 1st commercial Concorde flight on January 21, 1976.
