  1. A couple of archival pics from me:

     

    Eddy Merckx; widely regarded as the greatest ever racing cyclist, at the World Championships in 1970.

    British Airways Concorde 206 G-BOAA in flight; England, UK – 1980

    concorde-206-g-boaa-in-flight-england-uk

     

     

    Another pic of Concorde added.  It is of the pre production version produced to finalise the version to be used by airlines.

     

    Concorde plane 101 G-AXDN (pre-production version) in flight UK – 1974

    concorde-plane-101-g-axdn-pre-production

     

    I also realised when adding the third pic to this post that the film stock used for the three pics were in themselves iconic in their day.  The first pic was taken on Agfacolor CT18, the second pic shot on Kodachrome 64, and the third one taken on Kodachrome II.
