CONCORDE SST - MEMORIES


The following is a table of the Airlines that placed orders or options for Concorde in the 1960's and 1970's.
The liveries are artist impressions supplied to the manufacturers that were representative of what the airlines wanted to apply. Concorde has certain restictions on its livery due to the fact that the majority of the surface must be white to withstand the supersonic heating effects of Mach 2.
