What did you all think?
I thought it was great. Apart from one error -- "concorde is the only supersonic commercial aircraft ever built"  Smile

First programme done on the subject to portray what happened correctly and fully tell the story of getting the Great lady back in the air. Also since the main players (Eddington, Bannister, Brodie, Freeman) took part it give the programme the authority that some other programmes have lacked.

Great they were on site when Banister got the call that the CofA was being returned.

Things that were a little out:
Not all the flying footage was "in the right place" most of it was not really noticeable apart from the Pictures of the landing at Brize Norton were used for a landing at New York .

Possibly the pictures taken during the first flight on July 17th weren't taken at this time but during the taxi test (Bannsiter was right seat on July17th due to CAA regs.)
