The Concorde Manufacturing Consortium - An Exercise in International Engineering Collaboration 730350

This account of the development of the Concorde and its eventual manufacture is highlighted by the cooperative efforts of two dissimilar countries, brought together by a singular vision and united by a determination to create a practicable design of a mass-transport aircraft. The innumerable problems encountered cannot be completely covered in this capsule history, but the overall review given here presents a new approach toward solving the economic troubles of the air transportation industry, which may possibly be affected by impractical competitive practices.
