Question Does Air France Concorde (Flight 4590 crash) exist?

Hi, I'm looking for a diecast model of Air France Concorde Flight 4590 that crashed in early 2000s. Its registration # was F-BTSC. The only models I can find with this registration number are the airliners of the 1970s.

Otherwise, which one would be the closest match: F-BTSD or F-BVFB ? (both of these ones are available for the year 2000)

I don't know anything about models...just looking for a little souvenir because I played the air traffic controller for this episode of Mayday (Air Crash Disasters). I'd like a little something that matches as closely as possible Flight 4590.

Thanks,
Alain

G'day,

If you're looking for a cheap but reasonable quality AirFrance concorde, there are several available on ebay. Such as:

Concorde 1:400 Air France 1976-2003 Diecast Plane Aircraft Airliner Model Toys | eBay

Exclusive made for SOCATEC, France by Gemini Jets. Here is the model as it appears in the database:

Socatec 1:400 Air France Concorde 102 - Wings900 ID# 33272

Cheers Lou

Unless it was produced before the event, you generally won't find many model companies making releases based on crashed airliners where fatalities were involved. The odd example does occur and there are several 1:400 examples of aircraft that were involved in accidents after the model was produced. F-BTSC was produced by Gemini Jets for Socatec after the Gonesse incident of 2000, but in the old Air France livery and that's as close as you'll get with the actual reg mark.
