Concodre Taxi Times At LHR

Tue Jul 22, 2003 5:12 am

Does anybody know at what time Concorde crosses the perimeter road and makes her way to T4? I believe the empty a/c from BA2 comes across around 7.30 pm (it did yesterday anyway).

Is it at a set time or does it change on a daily basis?

From what I saw, it is mostly between 3.30 and 4 pm.

I was lucky to see it a few times a week ago (last time in my life to withness this!!).

And could it have ended better? While we were ready to leave the spot to go to T1 for our flight back to BRU, what came suddenly taxied to 27R? (we were on the road parallell with 27R at that moment, in front of the fence with our back headed towards the visitors center). The Concorde! It took off just in front of us, what a nice goodbye surprise!!!
