    About Last Days of the Concorde. The gripping true tale of a devastating plane crash, the investigation into its causes, and the race to prevent similar disasters in the future. On J , a Concorde, the world’s fastest passenger plane, was taking off from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris when it suddenly burst into flames.   A Concorde captain raved that the plane flew beautifully, and that the only indication of its speed came from looking down at other jets far below that seemed as if they were flying backward.

    I was 14 the first time I saw her with my own eyes, as my my uncle had discovered Concorde would fly into Sydney, my home town, on a round-the-world charter. Together we headed to the airport to Author: Jaunted.   Written by Jacopo Prisco, CNN In March , just months before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, Concorde made its maiden flight. The supersonic plane embodied a .

      The Concorde is the stuff of aviation legend, yes — but also of rock and roll and show business legend. The story of how Phil Collins played a mega-concert on two continents on the same day is a classic example of how stars used the supersonic jet. In Author: Mike Arnot. Flying Concorde book.

To Fly the Concorde (Modern Aviation Series) Paperback – January 1, by Ken Larson (Author)Author: Ken Larson. Brian Calvert had the unique perspective of flying both pre-production and in-service models of the Concorde which is pretty rare in this business. Often test pilots test and airline pilots fly passengers, rarely is there crossover.

Additionally, Brian was among one of the first pilots at many different destinations with the Concorde/5(16). This is the story of Air France Flighta Concorde supersonic jet bound for New York, that took off from Charles de Gaulle-Roissy airport in Paris on J and flew only kilometers (6 miles), about 66 meters ( feet) off the ground, before crashing on a small hotel in Gonesse, killing people, including four people on the ground and all passengers and crew on the plane.

"Flying Concorde is written in a manner which gives anyone who knows the author as well as I do a feeling of talking to him in person. He knows the airplane, and he writes about it in such a way that even the most technical aspects can be readily understood.5/5(5).

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Concorde, by Jonathan Glancey is a descriptive history of anything related to supersonic aircraft, not just the Concorde, a supersonic airliner which flew until Overall this book was informative as well as entertaining, but would get carried away at some points/5.

First of all I would like to point out to those of you who are trying to fly the "Concorde Adventure flight Heathrow to JFK" in FS don't, as a great deal of it is wrong.

The part that is wrong with this adventure is when you have to descend to FL 50 nm out from Gander and fly the last nm at subsonic speed kts IAS.

Bringing a brand new perspective to one of the most iconic aircraft ever to fly, Building Concorde is illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings and technical plans from national and private archives uncovered by Tony Buttler and Jean-Christophe Carbonel, many of which have never been made public before.

This is the behind-the-scenes story of the genesis of the record-breaking aircraft that was /5(6). Celebrate 50 years of supersonic achievement with a group visit and step aboard the last Concorde ever to fly in the anniversary year.

Aerospace Bristol (UK) -- A hugely enjoyable new museum built around the Alpha Foxtrot, the last Concorde ever to fly. The museum, close to the aircraft factory where Concorde was developed.

Concorderegistration G-BOAF, was the last Concorde built, and was also the last in a long line of Bristol-designed aircraft to be assembled and flown at Filton. It returned home on 26th Novembermaking the final flight by a Concorde. It is intended to be the centrepiece of a heritage cen.

It reveals what it was like to fly Concorde, and the training procedures to which Concorde pilots are subjected. The latest edition () brings the story up to date, with chapters on Concorde's final flight and decommissioning, advice on where to go to see Concorde at rest, and information on Authority control: ISNI:.

List price was about $12, round trip back in the early s, as I recall. Back in those days there was a structure something like this: Full-fare Coach - $1, Business Class - $3, First Class - $6, Concorde - $12, with each tier pri. The Concorde program also marked a then unprecedented cooperation between rival aircraft manufacturing nations.

The well-known French aviation author and historian Jean-Christophe Carbonel has contributed to the book and the result is an account of the French contribution to the Concorde project often overlooked in previous works on the aircraft/5(2). Flying Concorde at Brooklands Museum in the only working Concorde Simulator with a retired Concorde Pilot over the London area and through Tower Bridge.

To have a go yourself, book. Nobody has yet mentioned Concorde's service LHR-IAD-DFW and CDG-IAD-DFW, jointly operated with Braniff, using Braniff crews on the IAD-DFW subsonic sectors.

The flights technically became Braniff domestic flights between IAD and DFW and were sold at about 10% above the standard IAD-DFW first class fare at the time. That service lasted at little more than a year from January. I have to say this is one of the most thorough books about Concorde. It has lots of information, many illustrations, an accessible language and even a description of what was like to fly it.

I liked it very much that almost every aspect of this unique airplane appears on the book. Even the "Concorde B" proposed development is mentioned/5(39). Air France (AF) and British Airways (BA) were the only airlines to purchase and fly Concorde. The aircraft was used mainly by wealthy passengers who could afford to pay a high price in exchange for the aircraft's speed and luxury cturer: BAC (later BAe and BAE Systems).

The Concorde made its first transatlantic crossing on Septemand it inaugurated the world’s first scheduled supersonic passenger service on Janu — British Airways initially flying the aircraft from London to Bahrain and Air France flying it from Paris to Rio de Janeiro.

"This book is an attempt to explain the technology of the world's most beautiful aeroplane, both for those with a professional interest and for the general reader." So began the introduction to the classic Concorde: New Shape in the Sky, the original edition of this book, published in EDIT: The most “different” thing about flying Concorde that pilots have to get used to when they transition from other airplanes is that Concorde has a Delta Wing.

Delta wings fly quite differently from “regular” wings They can fly at high angles of attack, they are very difficult to stall, and at high angle of attack benefits from “vortex lift” which causes a rumble or vibration in the cabin.Last Days of the Concorde: The Crash of Flight and the End of Supersonic Passenger Travel () by Samme Chittum is an account of the Concorde crash that was the beginning of the end of Concorde.

The book also has quite a lot about the Concorde itself.4/5.
