Concorde's maiden flight, Fairford, Gloucestershire, 10 April 1969. 'Britain's Concorde 002 made a 21 minute flight into the seventies yesterday and gave Britain and France a possible seven year lead over any possible American rival. It was champagne in Bristol last night after a great day for Britain and her planemakers. Technology Minister Anthony Wedgewood Benn summed it up: 'I have never felt so proud to be British and I think my feelings are shared by everyone who watched and waited for this day.'
