FLIGHT FACTS

The Concorde carries its own weight in fuel (105 tons)
The Concorde stretches 6 to 10 inches in flight due to the heating of the airframe.
The skin temperature reaches 260 degrees Fahrenheit at Mach 2
BA's Concorde have carried 2.5 million passengers.
Travelling westward, the Concorde lands at a local time earlier than the local time where it took off.
British Airways predecessor BOAC accepted its first supersonic passenger reservation in 1960;
service was inaugurated in 1976 (to Bahrain).
If at Mach 2, you putted a golf ball from the back of the cabin to the front,
it would be a very long putt indeed - the plane would have traveled five miles as the ball rolled.
