Jean Claude is based on Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde which was one of only two supersonic airliners ever built. Concorde was built as a joint venture between Britain and France. Of all the 20 Concordes built, one was taken apart and another one was destroyed in a fatal crash in 2000, leaving 18 survivors in total.
Jean Claude's livery is reminiscent of the livery of one of the prototype Concordes.
