  • Rotor club: Our top 10 most influential helicopters


    With the Bell Helicopter 505 Jet Ranger X making its maiden flight recently – and with the technologically advanced 525 Relentless waiting in the wings – we run down a (entirely subjective) list of the most influential helicopters of all time. And before anyone complains at the lack of a tiltrotor or compound rotorcraft, for reasons of simplicity we kept to conventional helicopters, as the more complex designs would fill a list all of their own. So, in order of age:

  • READY IN FOCUS PICTURES CONCORDE: A decade after its retirement, there is no sign of a successor to Concorde

    News | 14 Oct 2013 11:03

    Thursday October 23 2003 was a typically chill, damp, late autumn evening at London’s Heathrow Airport. The type of evening to send people home from work to the warmth and quiet of an evening in front of their televisions. On that night, however, the airport’s perimeter fence was lined with more than 1000 onlookers, clutching cameras, binoculars and, in many cases, the hands of their young children, there to witness a melancholy piece of aviation history. At 19h20 their wait was rewarded as a roar announced the departure for New York JFK of the final westbound flight of fare-paying passengers on board a British Airways Concorde. For the last time, the blowtorch exhausts of four Olympus 593 engines in full reheat speared through the darkness as the supersonic airliner rotated and climbed out to the west.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/READY-IN-FOCUS-PICTURES-CONCORDE-A-decade-after-its-retirement-there-is-no-sign-of-a-successor-to-Concorde-391649/
