Hello. Being a commercial aircraft enthusiast (If you say you've seen
all commercial aircraft enthusiasts, you haven't seen me) and the
Concorde being my 2nd favorite airliner (My 1st being the 747), these
two questions arose in my mind:

1). What is the maximum speed of a Concorde?

2). Because of the speed of the Concorde, the engines must be pretty
powerful. What kind of engines are these and are these some kind of
special engines?
