As many of you know I work at a pilot supply store close to LAX. I have meet some very cool people in there ranging from Harrison Ford, to a Russain Cosmonaut. But yesterday I had an Air France capt come in, and he flew the Concorde for 9 years! He told me that it was a great plane to fly. He said it flew like a fighter Jet! He claims taking Concorde into Kai Tak was much easier then a 744. He also was telling me if you do not lower your nose your gear will not come down. Also that when the Concorde takes off it climbs as fast as 10,500 feet per minute intially! But he also told me he doubts the concorde will fly again, but hopes it does!
