A model of the planned supersonic airliner Concorde went on show at Farnborough in 1962.
Later that year, French Ambassador Geoffroy de Courcel (left) and the British Minister of Aviation, Julian Amery, signed the Anglo-French supersonic airliner agreement - and Concorde was born.
The airliner was constructed in both France and Britain. Here, a wooden mock-up of Concorde can be seen at the factory in Filton, Bristol.
On the other side of the Channel, Concorde prototype 001 can be seen under construction at the Sud Aviation factory in St Martin-Toulouse in 1966.
In March of that year, a section of the fuselage was wheeled out of the hangar at Filton for testing.
Concorde's official roll-out ceremony in Toulouse in 1967 was attended by Britain's Minister of Technology Tony Benn and the French Minister of Transport, Jean Chamant.
Employees of BOAC crowded around to get a close look at the prototype in 1968.
On 2 March 1969, Andre Turcat piloted the first flight of the French prototype Concorde 001 at Toulouse-Blagnac.
The first British Concorde, 002, took to the air on 9 April 1969, a month after its French counterpart.
In 1972, aircraft engineer and industrialist Sir George Edwards presented BOAC chairman Keith Granville with a silver model of a Concorde airliner after BOAC signed a contract to buy five of the aircraft.
Thirty-five passengers waved goodbye before departing from Heathrow Airport on Concorde's first public flight in 1975.
Following the lifting of a ban on Concorde flights to New York, Capt Brian Walpole smiles from the cockpit on 22 November 1977, having just flown in from London.
Concorde's speed and expense quickly linked it in the public imagination to national leaders, top executives, rock and film stars - and royalty. Pictured is the Queen on board in 1977.
Even the Pope travelled on Concorde. Here John Paul II waves to well-wishers as he disembarks at Lusaka airport in 1989.
In 1995, Concorde set a new round-the-world speed record. The supersonic jet made the trip in 31 hours 27 minutes and 49 seconds, passing through three sunrises.
The beginning of the end for Concorde came at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport on 25 July 2000. The crash killed 113 people.
Following the crash, BA and Air France made a joint announcement on the jet's retirement. Many of the planes ended up in museums. This Air France Concorde took a novel route to get to its new home in southern Germany.
For those who saw it, Concorde will always be remembered for its unique shape and the sound of its Rolls-Royce engines.
