The fastest Concorde, pre-production aircraft G-AXDN
This aircraft first flew on 17 December 1971 from Filton and was retired to Duxford, where it landed on 20 August 1977, having made 269 flights (632 hours), of which 168 flights were supersonic.
During intake trials at Tangier following modifications to the intake control systems, the aircraft reached the highest speed ever reached by a Concorde of Mach 2.23 (1,480 mph) at a then record height of 63,700ft. This record was surpassed when another Concorde flew to 68,000ft.
