Midlands Memories: 1960's Concorde fashion....

Forty years ago today Concorde took off on its first commercial flight - and it was incredibly popular with the public. The Chief Pilot was Mike Bannister from Burton-on-Trent and the engines were built by Rolls Royce in Derby.

When it landed at Birmingham Airport in 1991 for the opening of the new terminal, thousands turned out to catch a glimpse.

The last Concorde commercial flight was 13 years ago, and though gone, is certainly not forgotten. In our latest Midlands Memories update, take a look at an earlier re-incarnation of the aviation giant - 1960's-style.

This video takes a look at the interior fashions of a 1967 plane, designed by post-war textile designer Tibor Reich of Stratford.

Watch more on the big Concorde anniversary on ITV News Central at 6pm.
