Hello all,

I am flying Concorde on BA001 this coming June 29th (a Sunday); is there anyone willing to photograph my aircraft on that day, both departing LHR and landing at JFK?
I'm prepared to pay whatever amount of money  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks in advance and please get in touch with me if you are able to do it!
Cheers
Federico

Hi,

Thanks all! Looking forward to the photos, and of course to the trip - just 4 days to go...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Just came back home from "THE flight", it was beyond words....I'm working on sorting out all the pics now and will be writing a trip report shortly. Also got to try out the new Club World sleeper's on the way back which was neat  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

G-CIVP & Donder10, since LHR (as well as JFK) was BLESSED with good weather on Sunday, was either of you able to catch my plane? That would be so cool...

Cheers!

The old girl looks as graceful as I've ever seen her in the evening sun as she made that sweeping turn from 09L, Donder is right about banking early-I don't normally try and photograph Concorde when it turns like that because it's too far away but last night was an exception and I wasn't ready:-(

That is wonderful! The early bank was amazing from a passenger's point of view, as was the whole flight.

Thank you again!
