The only picture ever taken of Concorde flying at Mach 2 (1,350 mph). Taken from an RAF Tornado fighter jet, which only rendezvoused with Concorde for 4 minutes over the Irish Sea: The Tornado was rapidly running out of fuel, struggling to keep up with Concorde at Mach 2.

Concorde lands before dusk at Heathrow. Each day Concorde left Heathrow for New York disrupting life all along its flight path as people stopped to look.
