Concorde Machmeter. This Concorde machmeter was presented to Captain Mike Bannister, Chief Concorde Pi at British Airways, after the final Concorde flight, in recognition of his 22 years flying Concorde during which he accumulated more Concorde flying hours, and more supersonic flying hours, than anyone else in the World. Concorde cruises at Mach 2, twice the speed of sound, 1350mph (2160kph). The Machmeter indicates the current speed to the Flight Crew and is iconic in that it encompasses the whole essence of the Concorde operation. These are very rare as only a few were made. Only a few of these ever appear on the market starting in 2003 when one sold for £28000 and in 2007 on fetched £27000. This Concorde machmeter will come with copies of a detailed description compiled by Mike Bannister himself, plus a copy of the British Airways Flight Training letter as provenance. Mike will also autograph the piece itself if the buyer would like this. Good condition

Antonio Maria Visentini (born November 21, 1688 in Venice, died June 26, 1782) was an Italian architect and painter. Between 1772 and 1778 he was professor of 'Architettura Prospettica' at the Venetian Academy. He is best known as the engraver of Caneletto's first series of Venetian views, Urbis Venetiarum prospectus (Venice, 1742), organised by the British Consul, Joseph Smith. It is likely William Rooke acquired this folio during his tour of Italy in 1777-78.

The Concorde Air Intake Control Panel. In supersonic flight at around 1,350 mph (22½ miles per minute) Concorde’s Rolls-Royce Olympus 593 engines could only accept incoming air at around 500 mph. Consequently the air had to be slowed down in the eleven foot long ‘Air Intake’ in front of each engine face. This was done by a carefully controlled pair of ‘Intake Ramps’ which were positioned precisely to generate a series of shock waves in the intake. The ‘Air Intake Control Panel’ is the unique item that allowed the Flight Crew to manage this complex process. Located on the Flight Engineer’s Panel, it is one of the key items that enabled Concorde to successfully fly at Mach 2 for over three hours – a feat that no other aircraft before or since has achieved. This Concorde Air Intake Control Panel will come with detailed descriptions and an explanation of how it works from Mike Bannister himself. Mike will also autograph the piece itself if the buyer would like this. Good condition
A set of eight Regency mahogany dining chairs, each with a padded back, a drop in seat on sabre legs.
The Concorde Centre of Gravity Position Indicator. The movement of the Centre of Gravity has to be contained within certain limits. At any given speed there is a maximum forward position ‘FWD’ and a maximum aft position ‘AFT’. The ‘Centre of Gravity Position Indicator’ allows the Flight Engineer and pis to know their maximum and minimum speeds at any phase of flight. The indicator is repeated on the Captain’s instrument panel. The CG limit bugs are orange pointers labelled FWD and AFT on the right-hand side of the instrument. The red and black diagonal striped flag appears across the middle of the scale to indicate a servo imbalance, bugs jammed, loss of power supply and loss of validity signal to the CG pointer. Mike will also autograph the piece itself if the buyer would like this. Good condition
