Concorde F-BVFB

The highlight of the Technik Museum Sinsheim aircraft collection is undoubtedly the original Air France Concorde F-BVFB. This supersonic jet is completely accessible to our museum visitors – a staircase leads visitors from "Flight Deck" up to 30 meters, allowing access into the passenger compartment and viewing of the cockpit. The original Rolls-Royce engines can be seen in the museum, along with numerous accessories and technical equipment. This queen of the air was transported from Paris in 2003 via Baden-Baden to the Technik Museum Sinsheim, and has since been available to admire next to its once Russian competitor, the Tupolev TU-144.

Below the Concorde, in the museum hall, an exhibition "50 Years Concorde" was installed. The original Rolls-Royce engines of the Concorde can be viewed there along with numerous accessories and technical equipment. Furthermore, you can sit in some of the original seats of the Concorde.

The serial number 7 was included in the Air France fleet on 8 April 1976. From 1 September until 21 September 1976 the aircraft flew round the world thereby covering a distance of 47,572 kilometers in 38 hours and 13 minutes. Altogether, this “Concorde” accomplished 14,771 flight hours and 5,473 flights.
