AIR FRANCE PRODUCTION CONCORDE
Compared to the development prototype Concordes, the final Production airframe version that we all know so well have a higher gross weight slightly extended main landing gear legs and improved aircraft systems. They were fitted with the Olympus 593 Mk 602 or 610 production engines. One of the interesting facts about the production Concordes, is that none of them are the same, they differed in weight, this is due them being hand-built and further development as the production of the aircraft continued. 216 G-BOAF was the most up to date and lightest Concorde being last to be built, and benefiting from new materials and improvements to the design.
