Default Concorde - Armée de l'Air Presidential

Presenting the Armée de l'Air Concorde F-RTSS (Transport SuperSonique) Presidential Transport. c.1981

In the French presidential election of 10 May 1981,François Mitterrand became the first socialist President of the Fifth Republic. He expressed his unhappiness at being flown to world meetings in a DC8 of Arméede l'Air . Having the view that a French President should travel in ‘style’ and in a French plane. With the Air France Concorde fleet underutilized, F-BFVC serial 100-209 was allocated to the task. However, it never was to happen due to the costs of the Arméede l'Air operating and maintaining a Concorde on it’s fleet. This combined with his economic policies leading to the Franc being de-valued on more than one occasion, meant the DC8 was to continue in service for a number of years, before the Airbus'.

Last one for a while and even now not quite right. The flags are too large and difficulty matching French Blue accurately on a printer.
