The Concorde Legacy Edit
Air France was one of the original Concorde operators along with British Airways and Singapore Airways. They were proud and well known owners of Concordes until 2000 when a concorde crashed due to an object on the runway popping a tire sending tire scraps into the wing-fuel tanks. This was similar to an accident in 1979. These accidents brought about the end of The Concorde.
