Concorde made a number of appearances at the Farnborough Airshow, including at the 1970 show–a moment captured above by our AirSpace member Orville. This year at the Farnborough Airshow (which we’re covering in full depth at our special site) we’re pleased to be bringing back a little bit of Concorde.
We’ve teamed up with David Leney and David Macdonald, the authors of the new book Concorde: Owners’ Workshop Manual (below), to hold a quiz every day this week. If you answer correctly you’ll go into a draw to win a copy of the book. We’re giving away a copy of the book every day so be sure to take the quiz and send us the answer to increase your chances of winning. There’s more information here.
Here’s the first question:
What was the maximum temperature on Concorde’s nose when cruising at Mach 2?
- A 146˚C
- B 127˚C
- C 100˚C
- D 217˚C
