Mastercraft Collection: Concorde Air France..

A symbol of innovation and technological advancement, the Air France Concorde remains one of the greatest aviation stories of the post-Cold War era. It is the only supersonic passenger airline ever designed, and the only one flown with any regularity. Featuring a state-of-the-art design, the Air France Concorde offered very minimal air resistance through its slim fuselage and low-wing monoplane delta wing layout. The pencil-type appearance of the aircraft was a requirement brought about by the high speeds of supersonic flight. This unique design obscured the flight crew’s view below; as such, the nose cone was equipped with a positional assembly, allowing it to be positioned down when taxiing or whenever necessary. Titanium was a main component of the Air France Concorde’s design, enabling the passenger airline to reach speeds of up to Mach 2 and a range of over 4,000 miles.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
