I think I remember reading that Air France rolled a Concorde.

1) Is this true?
2) Is there any footage or a link?

Thanks

First I have heard, although I think someone might have joked about it a few years ago, not sure though. Could Concorde hav survived a barrle roell?

I do not think there is any footage, well I have never seen any, but yes it is true and how do I know, because a work colleague was a F/E on one of the flights. However I think it was the French test crews rather than "Air France" that did it

Correct. The head French test pilot claims to have barrel-rolled one during her early days.

I figure if "Tex" Johnson could barrel-roll a 707...  Smile

It's a 1g manoeuvre. No technical reason why it couldn't be done but I'm sure a few armchair experts here would consider it dangerous, hence the reason airliners aren't rolled very often and never with fare-paying passengers on board.  Smile

There's some information here, within the discussion about loops:
