Concorde. The Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde (/ˈkɒnkɔːrd/) is a French-British turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner that was operated from 1976 until 2003.

3. It’s (Almost) Supersonic. Air Force One has the ability to fly at a speed of over 600 miles per hour (or 92 percent of the speed of sound) — so fast that F-16 fighter planes escorting the president’s plane while in flight on September 11 had difficulty keeping up and had to ask the plane’s pilot to slow down.
Will the Concorde fly again?
If all goes to plan, the nose will be functional by April 9, 2019, the 50th anniversary of Concorde’s first British flight. The British-French designed Concorde, capable of flying at twice the speed of sound, once transported passengers between London and New York in under three and a half hours.
