This is a vintage 1970's sterling silver Concorde SST charm which is now retired. This is a great piece of memorabilia of this first supersonic aircraft and days gone by in luxury travel. The charm is marked SILVER and measures 1 3/8" in length by 5/8" wide. The nose of the plane moves and you can see into the cock pit! A great piece for a collector.
First flown in 1969, Concorde service commenced in 1976 and continued for 27 years. It flew regular transatlantic flights from London Heathrow (British Airways) and Paris Charles de Gaulle (Air France) to New York JFK and Washington Dulles, flying these routes at record speeds, in less than half the time of other airliners. Concorde also set many other records, including the official FAI "Westbound Around The World" and "Eastbound Around the World" world air speed records.
As a result of the type's only crash (on 25 July 2000), world economic effects arising from the 9/11 attacks, and other factors, operations ceased on 24 October 2003. The last "retirement" flight occurred on 26 November that year.
