Concorde 002 prototype taking off Postcard
Old Postcards showing classic aircraft of the past.
Welcome to the Aircraft section of Classic Wheels, a new site for everyone interested in preserved vehicles and historic transport.
This part of Classic Wheels contains scans of original postcards with an aviation theme to them, dating from way back when the Wright Brothers took their
first tentative airborne hops, right through to Concorde, one of the few things we in the UK could be proud of (now sadly reduced to a silent relic in museums).
Please note that no postcard image on Classic Wheels is to be reproduced elsewhere, or directly linked to from other websites. I am not aware of any copyright
on these images but if any images are under copyright, please get in touch and I will
remove it, or credit it accordingly, asap.
Below is an original postcard, titled 'Concorde 002 prototype taking off'.
This is postcard # 23 in this collection of aviation cards.
To see the other old aircraft postcards, visit the image list here and check out the
other classic jets and prop planes of the past, in addition to this one of the Concorde 002 prototype taking off.
More Information on this Concorde 002 prototype taking off aeroplane postcard:
An original 1960s postcard showing prototype Concorde 002 taking off, a joint build between Sud Aviation France and the British Aircraft Corporation. This magnificent aircraft flew until 2003 by which time the bean counters decided that there was no need for a ground breaking supersonic service any more, so back to lumbering 747s for the jetset.
