To me, the true 'geek' would come across on camera as socially awkward, young for his/her age, a bit immature maybe.
Which was certainly not the case in this documentary, quite the opposite in fact.
As for advertising, it was about BA
retiring the aircraft, some views were expressed by at least one pax that are not the official BA
line (certainly close to what most of us think privately though, at all levels), BA
also provided full access.
Engineering Manager interviewed was not a person who found doing this sort of thing came naturally, but in that job he got plenty of practice.
man explaining what a part was for, in the hangar, was not a Concorde staff member, but he was in the Engineering Communications dept, so was escorting the camera crews around the hangar.
He and I worked together a lot on visits, mostly prior to 2000/2001 when there were fewer restrictions, when I told him he was in the film he was most surprised!
As for the flight experience, well I was on OAE's museum delivery flight to BGI
, so got a 777 back.
Club seat, nice, plenty of room, more food than Concorde but not quite as good, OK
You know what? I soon got bored, look at the flight tracker, watch a movie, read a bit, try to sleep (no chance), then a few hours later, check the tracker again.
'We've hardly f***** moved' was my only thought when checking the tracker after all that time.
So I know which way of traveling I preferred.
That's just me though, first two flights were BA
747 airtests, stall and all, then a DC-3, so perhaps I'm less tolerant to normal long haul flying than most.
