Abstract:
In 1962 British and French Governments committed funds for the design, testing and production of a supersonic airliner. Fourteen were completed. These aircraft are currently in their sixteenth year of passenger service and, judged on their reliability, have carved out a niche in the air transport market. Behind this success lay the problems of maintaining a radically different aircraft that operates in a radically different environment.
