In 1986 British Airways celebrated 10 years of Concorde in commercial service, accumulating 71,000 supersonic flying hours.
To mark the 10 years of services, BA attempted something never done before – to fly four aircraft information for a very special occasion.
I heard about this and knew it needed to be painted. After quite a bit of research, I found out the details and started my composition, aided by an Air x kit and some model photography.
Eventually, I arrived at a pleasing composition. Then the real challenge: FOUR Concordes in one painting. Each in a slightly different angle and perspective, along with some VERY subtle curves.
Eventually, I was pleased enough to stop. I hope I’ve captured the incredible look and feel of the aircraft and sense of occasion.
