Hey Guys, I am curious to know if Concorde had Cargo doors on the aircraft or cargo bins. I have studied pics of the aircraft and have seen none. Judging by the pics of the interior there is not much room for luggage, so where did they stack all the bags?

There's a baggage compartment in the rear of the aircraft, I assume that's where almost all luggage was stowed. Have a look here: http://www.concordesst.com/accomodation.html. http://www.concordesst.com/ has a lot of information on the Concorde, a very valuable website.

From the little I've seen of a Concorde on the ramp, baggage was loaded through cargo doors that were on the centerline of the belly of the airplane.
The closest counterpart to this system is the one that United used on all of its DC-8's; no other DC-8 operator used the system United had. It again loaded baggage in containers into the airplane through centerline doors in the belly of the airplane.

Concorde has a luggage hold at the back of the aircraft under the tail, there is also a hold behind the nose wheel.

The rear hold, as shown in the accommodation specs, had the greater capacity, on many charters to outstations it also carried a spares pack (as Concorde spares were only held at LHR, CDG, JFK, BGI and until 1994, IAD).
Some pics of the rear hold and doors here;

The cutaway here shows the fwd hold, pics of the actual hold to be added later, the sst.com webmaster, Gordon, has them because I took pics of the inside of this area for him!

http://www.hs121.org.uk covers the Trident.

http://www.747sp.com is "down for a D-check" at present but is well worth a look.

http://www.labiker.org/xb70.html for the XB-70, intriguing even though its an experimental.

http://flytristar.tripod.com for the L1011.

There's a really good one out there somewhere for the Convair 880 but I've apparently ditched the address.

Can somebody tell me how to show these addresses as hotlinks or whatever they're called? e-mail me at greendgls@aol.com.
