Check your local PBS station for the times. NOVA usually every Tuesday at 8PM

Title of this NOVA episode: Supersonic Dream

NOVA looks back over the 30-year story of the development of the world's first operational supersonic airliner. Revisiting the thrill of its maiden flight of 1969 and the tragic Paris crash of 2000, the program is a unique and colorful aviation saga, drawing on rare behind-the-scenes footage and including interviews with Concorde fans, including Henry Kissinger and David Frost.

These shows tend to be so horrifically boring... just how many times can the story of "British & French make plane, fuel prices up, no other airlines firm order it, finally makes it into New York, blah blah blah" be told???


I'd say the absolute only decently original Concorde programs out there are "Anatomy of a Disaster" as well as the Nat'l Geographic special whose title eludes me at the moment..

I thought Nova's thing on the Joint Strike Fighter was extremely interesting. Seeing what goes on in the Skunk Works and Phantom Works was worth watching in itself.

I enjoyed Nova's episode "supersonic spies" on the Russian/British rivalry with the Tupelev and Concorde.

On the contrary of what others might say, the Nova show tonight was extremely good. Yes, it showed history but, it wasn't boring at all. I found the show a bit saddening that the Concorde is not with us any more.

A tribute a wonderful aircraft indeed.

I agree, KI808.
I am a big fan of the Concorde and I saw footage and interviews I had never seen before! Granted, I didn't learn much but it was still interesting.

I am also thankful it was on before The Amazing Race on CBS!



None shall pass!!!!

I would agree with Richierich's assessment. More was presented about BA's charter flights and the impact of 911 on the cadre of frequent flyers I had seen before .
