Demirel, Thomas Arne, Concorde

On the 12th of March –

A coup d’état in Turkey deposes prime minister Demirel in 1971. Rather than tanks, the military sent out a memorandum, effectively threatening to send out the tanks:

British composer Thomas Arne is born in 1710:
Unidentified Man Alternative Title: Called Giovanni Battista Bononcini / Thomas Arne
His most famous works are ‘God, save the King’, and ‘Rule, Britannia!’, even though more people will know the songs than the composer.
Rule Britannia

Anglo-French supersonic paggenger jet Concorde makes its first flight in 1969. It flew until 2003 and connected Paris to New York in just over 3 hours.
