Concorde G-BOAC in flight 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 G-BOAC in flight'.
This is postcard # 27 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 G-BOAC in flight.
More Information on this Concorde G-BOAC in flight aeroplane postcard:
Looking down on G-BOAC, the flagship of the British Airways fleet, as it flies over the UK countryside. The hysterical rantings from sections of the American public in the 1970s all but killed sales of the Concorde, from which the project never recovered. Ironically in 2003 they were very keen to get examples to display in their museums. G-BOAC is now on display in the aviation park at Ringway airport, nr Manchester.
