And also these Youtube Videos, one showing the late Concorde landing at LBA which almost turned into the first Concorde disaster.

cheers Leezyjet.....that's the stuff my childhood was made of. I remember the first Wardair flights; it was quite something that LBA had a direct Toronto service, but such a shame there are none today! You'd think that a weekly summer TCX 757 would make a good job of it.

Nice find Lee, thanks for sharing these classics. How things have changed though - seeing some of these exotic airlines at LBA back in the day and they can't even keep an LHR feeder any longer. It's such a shame really, although at least the PIA service has restored an admittedly small long haul addition to the airport.

Nice stuff Lee, even with the 'unmentionable'!

You-Tube is a lethal 'where did those hours go' when it comes to aviation.

Graham,

Not sure if you want to link those Concorde videos on ConcordeSST.com, but I think the Late landing one might be of interest. I'm sure the chap won't mind.

I read over on pprune that after that landing, spare parts had to be driven up from LHR and the a/c fixed overnight as the nosegear was damaged by the very high speed turn into the loop. The flight crew also had a large dry cleaning bill !!!!. Can you shed any more light on it ?.

The 'late landing' at LBA, happened 10 months before I was in Concorde Engineering, I did not hear of it at the time within BA Engineering generally.
Later, I got to hear basically what you've mentioned, less any mention of a cleaning bill!

There is a guy on Concordesst.com who is a mine of info on landing gears, I'll link this there and see what emerges.

The chap thinks that noise in the background just as the nosewheel is touching down is the crash alarm being activated....not sure myself though.
