Concorde In Boston Today

Thu Oct 09, 2003 12:45 am

The Concorde will be visiting BOS today. Arrival time is at 3:20pm I believe.
Anyone know how I can find out in advance which runway it will land on? Just looking to figure out what the best place for spotting will be.

Is that why BA001 has been cancelled on the LHR-JFK?

Logical thinking is a landing on rwy 33 (noise), which also allows for a quick roll all the day down the runway to take it directly to Terminal E.

The flight is delayed-it returned to it's stand at LHR due to a technical fault. Should have left at 1630 and it's still here at 1815.

OAE had a RTO due no.2 reheat fail, after some consultation to see if they could with just 3 reheats with the flights load and fuel uplift, it was decided to go with OAD, which is now due to depart LHR at 19:00.

Thanks for the information, GDB.

the Logan airport website has live flight radar information for those unable to make it to BOS today -- http://www.massport.com/logan/a_default.aspx

After landing, the captain announced to the ground controller that it was the fastest crossing from London to the United States ever  Smile

I'm a little upset that it went tech...I camped out at Constitution Beach for 2 hours this afternoon, but of course, no Concorde came. Oh well...I'll have to try and go to JFK to get it in a couple of weeks...

It landed on 33L a few minutes ago, just before 1800 eastern time.

I'm so glad I got to see that in JFK, and both of them taking off right over my head. WOW!

And It Broke The 1974 Transatlantic Record

Thu Oct 09, 2003 12:11 pm

G-BOAD landed in Boston Wednesday in a record London-to-U.S. time of three hours, five minutes and 34 seconds, according to BA spokesman Jeff Angel.

The old record of three hours and nine minutes was set in 1974 on a flight from Paris to Boston on Concorde 02 (F-WTSA)

Maybe the short wait help the conditions improve.


Just as the aircraft goes out of service it starts breaking records.

Recently on test flight from Cardiff to LHR, they went from Zero to Mach 1 in less than 5 mins, something never before acccomplished on a civil aircraft
