Up for sale is a brand new 1:200 scale Air France Aerospatiale/BAE Concorde by JC Wings in the special “Pepsi” livery.

With their market shares eroding in the soft drinks market, US Company Pepsi Cola needed to undertake a major re-branding of its products. They started to look around for a spectacular and efficient manner to advertise its new brand style and in the process enhance its sales. It was eventually decided to have an advertisement operation involving the Concorde.

Pepsi started requesting proposals from both Air France and British Airways. Air France was eventually awarded the contract. This meant that as the new identity of Pepsi was based on the colour blue, the aircraft would need to be painted blue. The issue of temperature is very important to Concorde, and the darker colours tend to build, retain and hold heat longer than lighter ones. It was necessary then for Air France maintenance staff to contact Aerospatiale, the French joint manufactures of Concorde, as the aircraft is only certified with a white colour scheme. They received approval to paint the fuselage in blue, but were advised to keep the wings in white due to the fuel temperature concerns.

Air France was advised to remain at Mach 2.02 for no more than 20 minutes at the most, but no restrictions were placed on them below Mach 1.70.

The whole operation carried out on this Concorde was undertaken in secret, as Pepsi wanted to keep all the surprise for the moment when it would unveil its new Pepsi Blue product. Concorde “Sierra Delta” was covered by brown wrapping paper after it was painted until it eventually left the hanger on March 31st during the  night, and was quickly rolled to the runway where it took off Gatwick (LGW), where Pepsi had planned to receive its guests at the special launch event.  (Credit to Heritage Concorde)
