This complicated little panel is responsible for the control of fuel to the Concorde fuel tanks, there are 13 fuel tanks numbered 1 to 11 (a standing joke in the Concorde world)
Fuel movement is responsible for correcting
Concorde's C of G during flight
The Center of gravity on Concorde can move some six metres just by moving fuel around the various tanks, a careful balancng act for the flight engineer
This section will be a long and detailed section on what each part of the panel does rather then how the system works.
