Flight Refuelling Limited and Concorde

Flight Refuelling Limited and Concorde Concorde, as is well known, has a most unusual fuel system with its own unusual conditions. It is normal for fuel transfer between tanks to take place in flight but that it should be used for fore and aft trim is another matter. In addition the fuel is used as a heat sink to prevent the outer skin at supersonic cruise acting as a 270F oven for the passengers. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

It is normal for fuel transfer between tanks to take place in flight but that it should be used for fore and aft trim is another matter. In addition the fuel is used as a heat sink to prevent the outer skin at supersonic cruise acting as a 270F oven for the passengers.
