Hi, I was wondering since I couldn't find it through a search if anyone happens to know the route that concorde BOAG took from New York to Seattle through Canada? I would be curious to see how close any of the route came to cities, or if it was diverted far north to avoid passing close to any cities. Any help would be appreciated with this question, I must add my thoughts to everyone else in the world that I am sad to see Concorde retired, but maybe one day there will be a successor to Concorde. Reading about the development of the aircraft on www.concordesst.com , and a book about it, it was a very big leap in technology for passenger service. Long live Concorde.

Thanks for any help

On charters, Concorde had been given dispensation before to supercruise over sparsely inhabited parts of Canada, so the sector OAG flew on the 3th November was not totally unprecedented.
However, I don't have details of the route, but Concorde had around a 20 mile wide boom footprint.
I understand that these routings did involve Northern Canada, one of the engineers on the flight commented that 'we probably made some moose shit themselves'.
The long taxi at BFI (partly caused by OAG arriving before many dignitaries for the handover ceremony) meant a total block to block time of 5 hours, however the record breaking flight time was 3 hours, 55 mins and 12 seconds.
Take off weight was 1825000kgs, landing weight was 104500kgs, fuel remaining on landing was 15000kgs

Thanks GDB for that information about the flight. Does anyone else know any more details about the flight this aircraft took? I would just like to be able to see on a map roughly the route it took, to see how close it may have come to passing over me and being able to at least see a contrail of it.

Exerpt from YVR Skytalk Nov 2003:

"BA Concorde flew over YVR to its final destination at the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field in Seattle, WA. An attempt at a low-level pass along the south runway was aborted because of a shortage of fuel needed for the display."
