'Special' Concorde celebrates 50 years

It is 50 years since the "special" supersonic jet passenger plane, Concorde, made its first test flight in France.

The plane - Concorde 001 - was first test flown in France ahead of trials in the UK a few weeks later.

The much-loved jet was built near Bristol and in Toulouse but was withdrawn from service following a crash and rising maintenance costs.
