In 1979/80, AF
Concorde's flew from IAD
, the aircraft had temporary US regs as Braniff crews (in the case of BA
I think) took the aircraft on the internal US leg, so it had to be a 'US' aircraft for this part of the route.
Mach 0.95 cruise is not efficient for Concorde, also with the poor economic environment made not viable, the flight from Europe to IAD
was the usual service that the airlines operated 3 times a week from 1976-1994 (in BA
's case, AF
may have stopped IAD
In 1976 the Port of NY had blocked Concorde flights, so IAD
was the first US destination, JFK
services started in November 1977.
I flew IAD
on OAF in 1993, not full, hence it being axed the next year.
From 1984-91 the IAD
route had an extension to MIA
So Concorde's scheduled US destinations have been IAD
, many other US airports have been flown to on charters, but don't expect them back any time soon.
Here they all are, many would have been one off visits, like airshow appearances, some were only ever BA
