Although I do have a book that has been on Concorde more times than me!

Back in may 1988 I was in a promotion flight onboard AF Concorde. The flight was about 1h15m. It took us from AAL (Denmark) over south Norway out to the Shetland Island. Then back over Scotland to Denmark.

We reached M1.00 after only 7 min, and M2.00 was reached after 12 min. The altitude was between 60,000 and 62,000 feet.

Great ride.

In 1982. LHR-JFK. I had recieved a large bonus and thought it would be a blast! I was living in Germany so I hopped a ride to LHR and off I went. Great ride. Sad they are gone.

Twice. One BA, one AF, both in the same year, 1999.

-- First one (BA) on Jul. 25. It was a long awaited (for me) champagne flight out of LHR. Early that year I feared for some reason that Concordes were soon to be gone forever, so I made myself that gift for my birthday. It was on board G-BOAE and it took over the Atlantic. Flight time was 1h17'. This is the picture of that day before taking off and while I was actually on board:

-- Second one (AF) was on Nov. 11. As a journalist, I was invited for a special ride CDG-BCN on board F-BVFB to promote in the Spanish market the Concorde connection to JFK at CDG. We took the long route over the Mediterranean in order to be able to reach the supersonic speed over sea. Flight time was 1h21'.

No i haven't and that is one thing in life i regret.
It would have been a dream to be in one of these supersonic flights but what can we do ?
Just have to wait for the sonic cruiser from Boeing .
Any news on the sonic cruiser would be appreciated .

October 1, 2003. BA 97 with GBOAG. Only time a scheduled (non charter) BA flight flew with Concorde to Toronto-only time a scheduled airline flight flew supersonic over Canada. I fly BA97 regularly. It was bizarre to fly Concorde that time and arrive 45 minutes before we left.
Yee haa. I would drop the same money and more to do it again.



there is economy class, business class, first class...then Concorde..pure class
