SUMMARY THE optimum powerplant for a Mach 2.2 transport aircraft is a turbojet. The Olympus 593, latest of a well‐proven family of twin spool, axial flow turbojets has been designed especially for installation in the Concorde. Invaluable development has been achieved from two 90% scale engines and the first seven full size engines. Satisfactory fuel and oils are now available for Concorde and the powerplant has already flown in a Vulcan flying test bed.
