  • Unbacked

    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $135 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • Braniff introduced Concorde service January 12, 1979 between Dallas-Fort Worth and Washington-London-Paris flights with British Airways and Air France. Flights between Dallas and Washington's Dulles airport were flown by Braniff cockpit and cabin crews from which British or French crews would take over for the remaining segment.

    Concorde was never painted in a Braniff livery, although there were many illustrations of what one would look like, as is seen on this poster.

    Braniff terminated Concorde services at the end of May 1980 due to the high cost of operating the service with load factors at only 20%
