The angle of Concorde's nose cone allowed for a super-streamlined shape in flight, but presented visibility issues for pilots when landing. This problem lay behind the US's initial refusal to allow Concorde to land at American airports. As a work-around, Marshall Aerospace designed a nose and visor that could be dropped to up to 12.5° from horizontal, allowing the pilot to see what he was doing during taxiing, take-off, and landing manouvers.
