    About Captain David Rowland
    Captain David Rowland is married with two sons and lives in North Oxfordshire. After basic training he joined BA (BOAC) in 1969 and became a Co-Pilot/Navigator on VC10s. In 1976 he joined the Concorde fleet. In 1993 he became Commercial Manager Concorde, responsible to Regional General Manager, Americas for the Concorde business in British Airways, and later combined the operational and commercial management role as General Manager Concorde.

    In total David has over 10,000 flying hours, most of which are supersonic. In 1995 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and is a Member of the Royal Institute of Navigation. He is a long term member of the Duxford Aviation Society, and in his spare time, enjoys going to the theatre, walking, reading, listening to music, playing golf and tennis (neither very well!).

    Over 1.5 Million Supersonic Passengers
    Concorde was the only supersonic passenger airliner in the world and British Airways was one of only two airlines operating this flagship of the worlds civil aviation fleet. A Over 1.5 million passengers have flown supersonically on board British Airways seven strong Concorde fleet since they entered commercial service on January 21st 1976. Cruising at 1,350mph, twice the speed of sound, a typical transatlantic crossing took less than three and a half hours.

    Concorde flew above all the weather and her passenger cabin was pressurised to a more comfortable level than on subsonic aircraft, reducing flight fatigue still further. Since entering service, British Airways Concordes have operated some 40,000 flights. Concorde's fastest yet transatlantic crossing was on February 7th 1996, when she completed the New York to London flight in 2 hours 52 minutes and 59 seconds, over 40 minutes faster than schedule.

    The small number of dedicated flight crews that flew this superb aircraft were drawn from the best and most experienced that British Airways had to offer and have more supersonic flight time than any of the pilots of the world's Air Forces!

    About Captain Ian Lawrie
    Captain Ian Lawrie commenced flying lessons aged 16, completing his first solo flight on his 17th birthday. In order to advance his flying hours and total experience, Ian spent some time in Vancouver, Canada prior to training to become a flying instructor on his return to the UK. Ian worked at a flying school specifically involved in ATC Flying Scholarship contracts in addition to instructor training.

    Upon completion and issue of his professional licence, Ian moved into general aviation charter flying before joining British Midland as a First Officer in 1986 on the Shorts 360. The DC-9 series 15 & 32 followed with his first Command being attained after type conversion on the BAe ATP.

    1990 brought a return to instructional flying with appointment as a Line Training Captain with subsequent qualification as Type and Instrument Rating Examiner following in 1991 (aircraft and simulator). During 1993 British Midland ceased operations of the BAe ATP. Orders for a mixed fleet of Fokker 70 and 100 followed and Ian joined the team that introduced this new type into the company.

    The Fokker 100 aircraft entered British Midland service in 1994.

    About Captain Alan Carter
    Captain Alan Carter was born in England in 1963. After completing his "A" levels, whilst also training for his PPL at school, Alan attended the Oxford Air Training School and completed his CPL/IR. Then when he was just 19 he was given a job by Dan Air Services as a co-pilot on the BAe 748 twin turboprop, based in Newcastle and later at London Gatwick.

    Alan operated both scheduled and charter passenger flights as well as freight contracts around the United Kingdom and Europe. Three years later Alan transferred onto the Boeing 727 aircraft operating charter flights throughout the Mediterranean.

    Alan remained on the Boeing 727 until November 1989, his last flight was into Berlin's Tegel airport the night the wall came down. He then left Dan Air and joined Virgin Atlantic on the Boeing 747-100/200 fleet as a co-pilot. Alan was promoted to Captain in 1994 at the age of 30. In February 1996 he was transferred to the Boeing 747-400 fleet.
