Air France Concorde Reg Wanted

Seeing a recent request for a BA Concorde reg. reminded me that I took a photo of an Air France Concorde departing YYZ on July 11, 1997. I can't quite read the registration but it might be F-WTSC.

I don't see an Air France Concorde listed with that reg. - the closest is F-BTSD but I'm fairly sure it is F-Wxxx on my photo.

Check this site for a complete listing of all Concorde registrations:

http://www.concordesst.com/fleet.html

It appears that the only aircraft with a French registry starting with "W" were three Concordes in the "development fleet," registered F-WTSS (Aircraft 001), F-WTSA, and F-WTSB.

Check this link to see the listing and disposition of each aircraft:

On my monitor it looks like F-BTSC (RIP)

Agreed, the aircraft in that photo is F-BTSC. I didn't realize he was asking about THAT photo in particular, just some random pic he'd snapped.

I found F-BTSC listed in my 2000 edition of 'Airlines'. It also listed its previous registration as F-WTSC. I had forgotten about the one that crashed - the reason I couldn't find it in my 2003 edition. I tried re-scanning the original print, but couldn't make the reg. any clearer.

I am beginning to feel like a jinx. I now have 4 photos on A.net of airliners that came to a disastrous end. Apart from F-BTSC they are :-

N736PA Pan Am B747-121 'Clipper Victor'
HB-IWF Swissair MD-11
N14053 American Airlines A300-B4-605R

AF Leased the then F-WTSC from Aerospatiale, eventually buying it outright in I think round 1980, but it was re-registered as F-BTSC in May 1975, according to the info I have, in that case it would have been F-WTSC for only 4 months, having first flown in this guise in Jan 1975.

BA leased 214, as G-BFKW in 1980, in early 1981 it joined BA outright as G-BOAG.
(Which is how 216, flying for the first time a year later than 214, ended up as G-BOAF in 1980, originally having the BAe reg G-BFKX, when leased to BA it was G-N94AF for the Braniff operated leg between IAD-DFW).
