J Francis: 835. Loadability of ‘Concorde’. 1970.



This paper studies the loading of the ‘Concorde’. The flight balance situation for a supersonic aircraft is compared with that for a subsonic aircraft. The fuel system, which has a big influence in achieving flight balance, is described, with special attention paid to the trim transfer portion of the system. Aircraft loading is covered and a description given of a fuel loading procedure that will satisfy all flight requirements.
