Concorde: Spotting At JFK And LHR

Fri Apr 11, 2003 3:29 pm

I just found out about Concorde ending service this October. Having never seen one (have always been in the Midwest or Southwest US), I would like to take some photos before I no longer have a chance.

I will have a couple of layovers at JFK next month (both on Saturday afternoons). What time is the Concorde there (if at all) on Saturdays and where are the best spots for taking photos of it? I will also be at London Heathrow early on a Sunday morning and then again early on a Saturday - same question.

Departures from JFK: BA at 9:00 a.m. (except Sat.) AF at 8:00 a.m. (except Tues. and Sat.)
Arrivals at JFK: BA at 5:25 p.m. (except Sat.) AF at 8:25 a.m. (except Sat. and Tues.)

The way the AF flights are timed you can get the departure or arrival but not both. Unless they're delayed there isn't enough time to switch positions to get both. The last few times I've been to JFK for the Concorde the BA Concorde didn't operate on time. It left around Noon and not the scheduled 9:00 a.m.

AF stops all scheduled Concorde services on May 31st this year, so don't hang about if you want to catch that one.

There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots
