CONCORDE TYPE CERTIFICATE & AIRWORTHINESS

What is a Type Certificate, we hear so much about it these days, with regard to returning Concorde to the skies. The aircraft required one to operate as a passenger airliner. Concorde did and would be required to conform to this type Certificate (TC) again if it returned to our skies in a heritage role. I have decided to write this section to try and make the whole situation clearer.

THE CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY & CONCORDE RTF

Would the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) support a return to flight for Concorde in heritage flight role?
