Concorde Airplane

Distinguished by a pointed nose that angles downward during takeoff, the Anglo-French Concorde flies at more than twice the speed of sound. The delta-winged plane was co-developed by Britain and France and began passenger service in 1976. Controversy has surrounded its use in the United States; the supersonic plane is very noisy, and some believe its sonic booms harm the environment.
