In March 1969 what is probably the most beautiful commercial airliner ever built took to the
skies for the first time, and with great success. Its name was Concorde, and this delta-winged,
eye-catching, engineering marvel would soon make the dream of supersonic passenger flight a
reality. She was a thing of beauty and when the call sign ‘Speedbird’ went out, every pilot in the
world knew exactly what aircraft they were talking about.
Robert’s iconic piece portrays an event over the Isle of Wight on Christmas Eve 1985 when
British Airways decided to celebrate 10 years of Concorde’s commercial service in a unique way.
Taking off in spectacular fashion from Heathrow airport, they flew four Concordes in formation
along the south coast for a series of special birthday photos.
