The Jet Age (1958 - Today)

Braniff Concorde

Braniff Airways briefly flew the Concorde in 1979–80 by temporarily purchasing an aircraft from British Airways or Air France for the duration of each flight. But flying subsonically between Washington, D.C., and Dallas–Fort Worth by Concorde proved more expensive and no faster than by conventional jetliners. This photo is an artist's impression, as the Concorde never flew in Braniff colors.
