3 Concorde's Visited Stavanger, Norway In One Day

Fri Nov 23, 2007 9:52 pm

Some pictures of an unusual visit at Sola Airport, Stavanger in Norway some years back. 3 Concorde was inbound Stavanger that day. 2 Concorde's parked side by side at the same time. I don't beleave it has ever happend before or since in Scandinavia. Certainly in London and Paris, but not in our part of the world....:

Most of the passangers were going on a cruise or leaving a cruise with the cruiseship Queen Elisabeth II

Nice website - I like the Landor livery on BA Concorde - it was extremely classy!

I'll be going on the Queen Elizabeth 2 myself in April, unfortunately I won't be connecting to New York via Concorde... a standard BA 744 is doing the job instead. What a shame!
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

Typical Stavanger weather in those shots.

IIRC, there was a similar event at MAN in the 1980s, with two Concordes visiting, one BA and the other AF. Does anyone else remember this, and would anyone have any photos of this?

Cheers,

Could have been any number of charters at MAN, quite unusual to to an AF one there?
Not so much with BA, MAN was often used, as part of regular UK tours with 'round the bays' from each airport, like MAN-MAN, also, quite a few charters to YYZ went through MAN too, in the latter part of the year, you'd get the odd JFK charter from MAN.

If I remember correctly, there was a female pilot on one of these birds, visiting Stavanger. I think she was the only female pilot at BA that flew the Concorde...

Yes, that would be F/O Barbara Harmer, from 1993 to 2000.
A bit later, certainly at the time of retirement, AF had a female F/O, first name Beartrice IIIRC. FLYSSC will know.
