Concorde cockpit, Fleet Air Arm museum
England
The cockpit of Concorde 002 which is currently on display to the public at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Somerset, March 8 2013. This was the first Concorde built in the UK and the second prototype of this Anglo-French aircraft. She was assembled in Britain and made her maiden flight from the British Aircraft Corporation's plant at Filton, Bristol on the 9th April 1969. The first French prototype Concorde 001 flew from Toulouse, France a month earlier on the 2nd March 1969. The main purpose of Concorde 002 was to act as a test and development aircraft for the fleet of 16 Concordes that were to be built for Air France and British Airways.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
