Thanks alot Arjen-san. Pre production model length(Pre-production Concorde 101 G-AXDN dimensions on Duxford Aviation Society site) is little long? Pre production model had short tail.

Wasn't there a bit recently on BBC radio about someone trying to raise money for a new concorde?
Ummm........Concorde is noisy, especially at landing.

I think somebody will have to visit Le Bourget and Duxford with a tape measure to settle this.

I found a couple of papers dealing with the "Concorde B" and that much improved Olympus.
Which has a different name than "+25%" as mentionned in that site
http://www.concordesst.com/concordeb.html

It was called the Olympus 593 mk.622 - larger fan and up to 10% to even 30% more thrust. 30% more thrust out of 18 tons, should be 24 tons, and not that far from the Boeing SST General electric GE4.

The papers are behind a paywall (and a pretty expensive one with that) but c'est la vie. I linked the first pages.

Anybody ever heard of a man called P.C Gupka that worked at Bristol engines in the late 70's ?

Having just received my copy of Building Concorde by Tony Buttler and Jean Christophe Carbonel I leafed to the part with Concorde's dimensions to settle a point that has been vexing me for years - fuselage length of prototype/pre-production/production aircraft. Lengths in SI units made no sense, with the prototype's length given as 64.16m, pre-production 67.51m and production 61.66m. Length in Imperial measures looked better:
- prototype 184ft 4.5in - 56.20m
- pre-production 194ft 0in - 59.13m
- production 202ft 3.6 in - 61.66m

A minor glitch in an otherwise excellent book.

Mr Gupta has a lot of articles on SST engines on the SAE.org website.
