Concorde To Fly Over London

Fri May 31, 2002 3:11 am

Concorde is expected to participate in the queens jubilee weekend this sat/sun with a flypast involving all types of aircraft from the spitfire and lancaster, to the Red Arrows and Concorde passing overhead in formation, a sight not to be missed either in london or on TV!!
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..

Noticed concorde fly over twice in half an hour which is very unsual, then made a turn back in a direction towards Heathrow after that. Would this have anything to do with the jubilee?

Was that today? I've not been at work today, but I've a friend who's an aircraft controller at BA, may have been on duty, I'll give him a ring.
I heard it go at about 10:50.
If not, was it on Wenesday, when we did the practice flight for the flypast?

Todays BA002 arrived at 17:30(ish) so it was probably just in a holding pattern awaiting it chance to land.

Yeah - it was today that it happened. Never seen it take about 30-45 minutes in a pattern, it only just goes over the once.

I was at my brother's school speech day and Concorde came over about 1715hrs yesterday - we were near Bracknell, Berkshire so it was landing over Windsor. Looked fantastic, as always.
