A year ago, Neil at MAN
, who helps to look after OAC, who I know, managed to get a public free day arranged for Concordesst.com members.
I went up (via BA
A319) to give an in depth cockpit tour, hopefully it might be possible to do this again sometime, but I'm very aware that Neil is very busy now, what with the Trident reassembly going on, and he is an employee there.
(Neil looked after the Trident at LHR
for many years).
But hopefully, one day we might be able to repeat this, (but odd for me, without thinking, due force of habit, I tried to switch the power on for the flight deck systems, of course that was removed as part of the decommissioning, power being provided for lighting only from the grid).
But I can highly recommend the MAN
Concorde, for accessibility even on a normal public tour, Neil does a great job keeping OAC looking good.
I took OAC to JFK
in Sept 2002, sad to reflect on, but good that it's being well looked after
