I'm flying to Manchester (EGCC) tomorrow for a Concorde Tour from LHR, so I'm obviously going to want a few shots from inside the cabin and the flight deck of both Concorde and on my flight. I have a Minolta Dimage Z1 and I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on what settings to have the camera on and whether to use flash or not inside. I only have 15 minutes to get this right and then I might never step on Concorde again so I'll be pretty annoyed if I get home to find out my shots were awful!!! Never really done cabin shots before, never with this camera anyway, and the last results were years ago and they were pretty bad lol.

Sorry Mike, I forget many people are new to photography and have yet to learn some of the basics.
Tripod if possible, and bracket!
A better definition then I could give from Phil Askey @ DPREVIEW.com:
Bracketing is a technique used to take a series of images of the same scene at a variety of different exposures that "bracket" the metered exposure (or manual exposure). "Auto Bracketing" simply means the camera will automatically take these exposures as a burst of 2, 3 or 5 frames with exposure settings of anything between 0.3 and 2.0 EV difference. This can be useful if you're not sure exactly how the shot will turn out or are worried that the scene has a difficult dynamic range. On a digital camera this can also be used to combine under and over exposed images together to produce an image with more dynamic range than the camera can normally capture.
When setting up for bracketing you can usually select the number of frames to be taken (typically 3 or 5), the exposure setting and the order in which to take the shots (eg. 0,-,+ or -,0,+ etc.).
