This week I met with Dr. Keith McLoughlin of Bristol University to discuss the remarkable story of Concorde – the first supersonic passenger aircraft.

We discussed the postwar origins of the project; difficulties with financing in the 60s and 70s; and why it retains such a hold over the public imagination today, more than fifteen years on from its final flight.
