A Late Concorde Departure Today At JFK?

Fri Jan 17, 2003 9:27 am

One of my friends (another member) was spotting at JFK today.

I thought that there were 2 daily departures on any given day at JFK: The 8:30am Air france and the 12:30pm BA.

He says he saw a BA Concorde departure at 3:30 PM. What is that all about?

thanks mirrodie

Yup, he was right. BA9150 took off around 205 or so, saw it myself when I was out. I don't know why this other flight was operating though

G-BOAG had been scheduled to fly back to LHR on Monday, but was delayed at JFK due to a minor technical problem.

A spare part had to be flown in from LHR, and following repairs the aircraft became serviceable late on Wednesday.

It was kept at JFK, to provide cover for the BA 2, and once that had departed safely, G-BOAG was flown home empty, as the BA 9150, an hour or so later.

Take off from JFK was around 14:00.
