Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: Air France Concorde

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Concorde, Fox Alpha, Air France:
The 1st supersonic airliner to enter service, the Concorde flew thousands of passengers across the Atlantic at twice the speed of sound for more than 25 years. Developed and built by Aérospatiale of France and the British Aviation Corporation, the graceful Concorde was a beautiful technological achievement that could not overcome serious financial difficulties.
In 1976 Air France and British Airways jointly inaugurated Concorde service to destinations around the globe. Carrying up to one hundred passengers in fantastic comfort, the Concorde catered to 1st class passengers for whom speed was crucial. It could cross the Atlantic in fewer than 4 hours – half the time of a standard jet airliner. Nevertheless its higher operating fees resulted in extremely high fares that restricted the number of passengers who could afford to fly it. These troubles and a shrinking marketplace sooner or later forced the reduction of service till all Concordes have been retired in 2003.
In 1989, Air France signed a letter of agreement to donate a Concorde to the National Air and Space Museum upon the aircraft’s retirement. On June 12, 2003, Air France honored that agreement, donating Concorde F-BVFA to the Museum upon the completion of its last flight. This aircraft was the initial Air France Concorde to open service to Rio de Janeiro, Washington, D.C., and New York and had flown 17,824 hours.

“THE BLACK WIDOW” Builders: Wally Olson (1952), Bill Scott (1954) and Richard Riddell (2005) The garage locate of the century! How lengthy have you been hot rodding vehicles–because the 1950’s? Many of us got began in the 50’s and 60’s. (For you genuine old birds out there that don’t forget hot rodding “T” roadsters with Roto-Faze ignitions, Ruxtell 2-speed rear axles, Riley 2-port heads and Laurel lowering kits, nicely what can we say you are a generation ahead of us and we take our hats off to you ‘original’ hot rodders.) BUT for all of us “The Black Widow” is a critical piece of 1950’s hot rodding annals and a benchmark for the industry! In an report in Hot Rod Deluxe, July 2008 entitled, “Tangled Web” the full-story of Richard Riddell’s quest to restore the original Black Widow had its public debut. Hot Rod Deluxe reported the car’s winning the 2008 Grand National Roadster Show which was a dream come true, taking “Best Early Altered T Roadster”. (See also Rod and Custom, June 2008.) It was also a contender for the Bruce Meyer award at the ‘Grand Nats.’ Why do guys like Richard Riddell (and the rest of us) commit years (3400 hours in Richard’s case) restoring a vehicle we located in a barn? Answer: ‘For the adore of the sport!’ All of us don’t forget some other cars with equivalent names, for instance the ‘Black Widow’ Monogram model car (“1/24 scale model/Ford ‘T’ Pickup Rod/removable top” by Mattel high quality hobby kits). Also, we remember General Motors/Chevrolet coming out in 1957 with their 1st racing version Chevy named “The Black Widow.” But predating each of these historic vehicles is the “The Black Widow” built by Wally Olson to assist maintain his kids out of problems in 1952 and very first débuted in Hot Rod magazine, September 1954 in an post entitled, “Lil’ Beau T”, which study, “Wally Olson, Fresno, California, automotive machinist, is the lucky owner and builder. Duane Taylor was named in for the body function.” It added as to why he constructed the auto, “What with so a lot existing upheaval in the teen-age ranks, Wally figured that a positive-fire way to eliminate these free-time, practically nothing-to-do troubles would be to interest them (his 9 and 12 year old sons) in a rod. So far the notion has worked like a charm.” In time the household moved on to other projects and Bill Scott bought the vehicle and redid it with fenders, headlights and all the stuff to make it ‘street legal’—as we utilised to call it! The first documentation of the automobile getting called “Black Widow” is identified in the magazine Rodding and Re-styling, August 1957 situation. That article reported Bill Scott’s adjustments to Wally Olson’s car, “The front end was revised to incorporate a tubular axle and tube shocks. The new owners also equipped the auto with a new energy plant. The original mill is a ’41 Merc bored out .one hundred inch more than stock, ported and relieved…includes 8.five-to-1 Offenhauser heads, a Weber full-race cam, and an Evans 3-caberator manifold.” [Note: The many engines that were housed in this auto later varied see final Merc develop information below.] Don’t you really like the sound of that “ported and relieved” and “full-race cam”—when’s the last time you used these terms? By the time the 1959 Hot Rod Annual was published the auto-title stuck for all time “The Black Widow.” Riddell’s two-Year Renovation! According to lengthy time race vehicle builder Richard Riddell’s log he states, “Sometime in 1955 Wally sold his roadster to Bill Scott. Bill once again named on Duane Taylor to turn the vehicle into a bonified street rod. With the additional of windshield, head lights, tail lings, and fenders it was finally capable to jump into his little Hot Rod and go crusin’. The pin stripping was completed by none other than Dean Jefferies with the familiar cobweb and spider on the turtle deck.” He reports that the car’s first win was “…a five foot trophy at the Sacramento AutoRama in 1957 for ‘Best Roadster’. Yes, Bill’s automobile was having the time of its life getting 1 of the best looking early California street roadsters of all time.” Richard states, “Bill Scott died about 1987…for several years the automobile languished…getting worse and worse…as is so usually the case for old Hot Rods.” The garage uncover in 2005 notes, “At a glance the roadster didn’t look that bad.” But the Naugahyde and carpet have been shot, fenders, original wheels and hub caps to name a few difficulties for the yet to start restoration. Riddell notes, “Under a somewhat decent body and paint job lurked a mess that went beyond your worst nightmare.” He adds, “I started wondering how I could salvage this little beauty in the rough. Not that many individuals have restored an old Hot Rod but, those who have know what I’m talking about. It’s significantly tougher than constructing a rod from scratch. But the roadster was begging to be restored and I’m glad that I was chosen to do it.”and#9472Richard died shortly after finishing the project but happily he was able to see “The Black Widow” win the ‘Grand Nats’ and have a feature center-spread post in Hot Rod Deluxe. Right here are a handful of of the Riddell-engineered refinements to this original automobile. and#61692 Recessed pockets had to be constructed in the frame rails to accept the front motor mounts which double as water pumps. and#61692 New front radius rods were constructed out of heavy wall chrome-moly tubing. The original ones have been so poorly made that they were unsafe. and#61692 The appropriate master cylinder banjo fitting was not available so, he fabricated a new a single from scratch. and#61692 The tooling mandral had to be CNC machined to facilitate metal spinning new brass tail pipe finish bells. Hey would you agree? Hot rodding is an art type and some Hot Rod Artists have mastered the craft and Richard Riddell is one particular of them!!!

To quote his wife Pat, “Unfortunately, Richard passed away on March 18, 2008 and will not get to take pleasure in seeing the new owner drive away with a piece of automotive history.” Richard’s loyal wife Pat grew up about racing because she was 9 years old. Her maiden name was Rodriguez. If you grew up at Lion’s Dragstrip, as she did, you might don’t forget her father’s rail? He and his brother ran an old leading alky rail beneath the name “Rodriguez Brothers”. Pat stated, ‘As I was expanding up I frequently wondered how I would ever meet somebody to marry, because all that our family ever did was go to the drags. Then a single day Richard came along and met me at the Winternationals.’ Well the rest is history. For Pat following Richard’s death there are just also several memories attached to all the memorabilia, race vehicles and hot rods in their storage—she would like to sell “The Black Widow” to some deserving hot rodder.
