 Pictures of Concorde and its pointed nose

 Here are some pictures I clicked of the Concorde at the Museum of Flight ( Dec 2007 ). They were used from 1976 to 2003 by British Airways and Air France. They were the only supersonic passenger airliners ever used. The one in the picture is the last Concorde which flew from London to New York in 2003. While being flown to Seattle, it was flown over the mountains in Canada otherwise it would violate the regulations regarding supersonic boom in the cities it would fly over. There were 20 such Concordes manufactured out of which six were for non-passenger travel related purposes. Seven were used by British Airways and Air France (each). British Airways and Air France had Concorde flights between New York, London and Paris. At the bottom you can see the inside of a Concorde as well as a picture of the cockpit.
