Concordes undergoing maintenance. Three Concorde aircraft in a maintenance hangar. Concorde is the world's only supersonic passenger airliner. The Concorde in the foreground is in a maintenance dock that has been specially constructed to fit the aircraft. This allows engineers and technicians access to all parts for checking and repair. Concorde made its first commercial flight in 1976 and is being retired from service in 2003. Photographed in the maintenance hangar at Heathrow Airport, London, England.
