You can now enjoy the first complete film history of the Western World’s first and only supersonic airliner. Nearly four hours of rare archive film, including exclusive footage from 1st Take, tell this fascinating story from the first to the last flight and beyond. Here are first-hand accounts from the shopfloor to the test aircraft and from the engineers to the airline pilots, who were proud to fly this much loved and much missed aircraft. Bonus extras include Concorde Around The World, a continent-to-continent account of a globe-shrinking journey and a flight deck tour of Concorde Alpha Charlie at Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park. The film was sponsored by ten members of the Bristol Aero Collection Trust, the charity behind the Aerospace Bristol museum, and they include Sir George White, great grandson of the Bristol Aeroplane Company’s founder.
