Summary

This scale factory model is mounted on a metal stand with a coloured globe of the world. It was donated to the Museum by Mr Graeme Swartz in 1994. The donor's father was The Hon. R.W.C. Swartz, Minister for Civil Aviation from 1966 to 1969. The model is believed to be a gift from the joint Anglo/French manufacturers who were hoping to secure orders from Qantas for Concorde in the late 1960s. Qantas had an option to purchase Concorde and evaluated the aircraft but chose not to order it.
