  • New York JFK > London Heathrow
  • Filmed using a total of 9 cameras

This prestigious documentary programme on the world's fastest civil airliner, Concorde is presented by Captain David Rowland and Senior Flight Engineer Roger Bricknell who take you on a full guided tour of this incredible aircraft.

DISK TWO
Following a good night’s rest in New York you join the crew again for a very detailed flight briefing at the BA dispatch office at JFK airport. This briefing covers everything we need to know – weather, Ultra Violet forecast, routing, fuel planning. There is also a very in-depth explanation of the complex noise abatement procedure for our take-off from JFK’s runway 31L out over Jamaica Bay.

Once onboard G-BOAD again we re-join our crew as they carry out their flightdeck setup, checks and briefings, INS programming etc.

Follow the start-up, taxi and take-off – here you see the full Jamaica Bay SID in detail. You will witness the very precise and intense detail of this complex departure.

Again, you follow all the detail; afterburners, acceleration point and full power climb out to our cruise altitude of 60,000ft.

As we settle into the cruise David and Roger once again take you around even more instruments! Roger gives you a very close-up and personal guide around the Flight Engineers Panel. Systems covered include: -

Fuel Transfer and Management
C of G (Centre of Gravity) movement and monitoring
Pressurisation
Air Bleed Control
Hydraulics
Electrical Generation

Roger even shows you where Concorde expands in flight!

David once again guides you through the process to get us to Mach II. Plus, even more details from the Concorde flightdeck.

As we reach our deceleration point and commence all the checks and briefings for our approach and arrival into London Heathrow’s runway 27L.

During both your flights David and Roger guide you through the systems that enable this aircraft to fly at twice the speed of sound.

This programme was filmed using a total of 9 cameras to give you the best views of all phases of flight.

Crystal clear audio utilises the aircraft's audio system so you can hear both the crew and ATC!

This is without doubt the most detailed look at Concorde that has ever been produced and is the only way you will ever see how this magnificent aircraft was flown.

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. Since then Ian has been involved in all aspects of Company pilot training, later being appointed to the post of Technical Pilot, which included Certificate of Airworthiness flight testing. Appointment to current position of Chief Pilot (Fokker fleet) was in 1997. This role combines office/management duties with continued involvement in flying training in addition to responsibility for pilot recruitment.

Received this in 24 hours, brilliant service!

Just watched the LHR to JFK disc. I could be here all night listing superlatives.

The camera placement on the flightdeck is superb, really lets you share what's going on.

The explanations by David and Roger are detailed without being too technical and you really feel a part of the crew.

I now know more about this wonderful aircraft than I ever did.

The crew are people I'd really love to meet. Not forgetting Les of course!

It has whetted my appetite for more from ITVV!

A big thank you to ITVV.

Right, gonna strap in and head back to Heathrow!

Malcolm Robinson

I can't say enough about how much I'm impressed with not just the quality of the video, but also the in-depth technical information that it gives you about Concorde.

I have always been a Concorde enthusiast, from the first time I saw it as a child, to my uncle being the first person to tow it to the gate on its first arrival at Pearson Airport in Toronto, to flying it Virtually on my PC on Flight Simulator 2004!

I was also impressed with the speedy delivery of the video. I received within a week of ordering it! Great Job! Will do business again!

Michael

Michael Penson

Thanks ITVV for this piece of history. As a "virtual" pilot I wish to shake Capt. Rowland's hand for making me feel the thrill of being at Mach 2 sitting on my sofa and for the perfect touchdowns at London and New York.

Very clear explanations of all a man must know about Concorde.

Thanks to Senior Flight Eng. Bricknell for the "technical part" of the fuel management, which makes mach 2 possible, and to Capt.
Les Brodie for his silent, but very important, job. I only regret not being on time to catch Capt. Rowland's invitation to get on board...

Lorenzo Schiavetti

Too bad that I came across this DVD only now, much too late to accept Capt. Rowland's invitation to book a ride on Concorde!

Can't stop watching it again and again, so much information on every technical and operational aspect of a supersonic flight.

What I would appreciate is a short biography of each crew member, like the one that is given of Capt. Rowland - all the three of them
contributed equally to the making of this excellent documentary.

Thanks heaps to all involved!

Teresa

This is the third one I've bought they just keep getting better .

Will be buying more!

Gareth Williams

WOW, simply WOW.

You just can't get these anymore; these are the sort of programmes I like.

The supersonic in flight procedure seems quite hard. And the whole takeoff seems more rushed in Concorde.

I'll say this is the best ITVV yet, excellent footage, well done ITVV, super fast delivery,

What more can you expect?

Geoff Dodds

Wow, what a brilliant DVD, if you want to know about Concorde, you need this DVD in your life, it's so well presented by the Captain and flight engineer, no details missed.

A wise purchase for anyone that likes commercial aviation, or in particular, the angel of the skies, Concorde

Ben Bamford

The DVD is simply awesome.

The fact that these professionals can fly an aircraft as complex as Concorde and meanwhile narrating to all of us is simply inspirational.

These guys really are a cut above the rest.

Julian Boiardi

Just watched the DVD's today, after ordering them on Thursday (again very speedy service!), and I'm very impressed, there is so much detail on the DVD's, covering every possible part of Concorde, with a great crew describing them to you.

Another great DVD living up to the high expectation I know ITVV have, the 5th, but certainly by no means the last in my collection from them.

Keep up the great work!

Kevin Rowe

A really great DVD.

I really felt part of the crew and I watch it all from my very own Concorde seats.

Its a shame that she don't fly anymore. I miss her so much.

A note to the flight crew: Many many thanks to three excellent members of the flight crew.

You really get a feeling of being looked after by these guys, they go to great lengths to explain everything despite being so busy anyway.

This is just an amazing DVD without a doubt worth every penny.

Great job ITVV

My regards to Dave, Les and Roger, thanks for helping the viewer become a part of your crew. I wish you and your families all the best.

It is sad to see that Capt Les Brodie has now retired from BA.

I wish him well in what ever he is now going to do as all of the crew.

Simon Cordall

Thanks very much for the magnificent programme you have made.

I don't stop to watch it.

Especially, the level of professionalism it shows during all the flight (and more) is a living example for the pilot I am.

I have been thinking about the whole crew during the day when Concorde was retired. Fortunately, this plane will be present forever on
the mind of each aviation lover.

When I got your programme, I "threw" it into my machine... I didn't move off my bed for 300 minutes...I know, as a customer, the high quality of ITVV programmes but this one is a MASTERPIECE.

A great goodbye to the arrow of the sky, and I also want to greet those engineers who 30 years ago created a bird capable of Mach 2.0

Francesco Vittori

Congratulations to both the ITVV team and the flightdeck crew for a truly outstanding DVD.

The amount of detail and explanation is entirely justified for this machine, and the depth of explanation by such a camera friendly team was a pleasure to watch.

If all of the future ITVV presentations could contain such detail please!

I know this is a tall order due to the nature of Concorde, but detail is everything, and this has knocked the bar for standards so far up it'll
be hard to match.

Well done.

Mark Thirkettle

WOW is the word for describing this DVD!!!

What an enjoyable 5 hours of watching! Now I really have a greater knowledge of one of my favourite aircraft!

Really worth every single penny as they explain EVERYTHING!!!

Great Job once again from ITVV!

Working at the French museum delta at Paris Orly airport, amateur since I'm 13, I bought your high-quality programme and made publicly about its qualities of pedagogy, details, beauty.

Best greetings

Charlet Sebastien

Without doubt one of the most in depth programme available.

The features and background of this remarkable aircraft is astounding.

David Dundas

I have just finished watching the programme and still taking in everything that was said.

The programme is the most impressive I have ever seen.

Jonathan Lewington

I have finished watching after 5 hrs and I enjoyed the flight a lot,

I definitely wish to travel with ITVV again.

Though that turn after t/off was hair raising! Speed bird Concorde 2 out

Jonathan

What a classic, 5 hours and I still can't get enough!

Fermin Fernandez

I have watched the Concorde programme 3 times now and still find that there is so much information to digest.

I think the Captain and Flight Engineer are excellent. They explain every aspect of supersonic flying in great detail.

Many thanks to them both and not forgetting the First Officer Les.

Well done ITVV. The best money I have ever spent.

Mike Douglas

This programme is a dream come true. What a fantastic plane.

I couldn't imagine that there was so much to do on this aircraft.

Thank you Captain Rowland and Flight Engineer Bricknell for your very clear explanations about this very specific aircraft.

If only I had the money to be one of your passenger...

Thank you ITVV also for the good filming quality. It is a 5-hour programme but you don't see the hours pass

Yves Lefevre

Wow, just Wow

Will Snuggs

This is by far the best programme of its kind ever produced in my opinion.

Dave, Roger & Les brilliant!

Good luck.

Robert Miles

Really excellent programme!

The best so far!

Technical cover is excellent allowing you to learn a lot about the Concorde.

Very good value.

Jose Fortuna

I was totally astounded by the quality of this programme.

All the explanations were clear and concise.

Especially, when the crew prepares to go supersonic!

You never realize what a crew has to go through until you see for yourself.

Excellent JOB!!! WELL DONE!!!!!!!!

Paul Wadkowski

Worth every penny - for 5 hours - works out at about a penny a minute!

Arnold Aaron

Senior Flight Engineer Roger Bricknell is incredible.

His explanation is so detailed it makes for easy following, I find myself going over the programme often.

I have a tremendous respect for these professionals.

Mario Ferretti

I was just blown away by the quality of this programme - the filming, sound and superb commentary from the Captain and Engineer gave a superb insight into Concorde.

The first forty minutes or so are taken up with a detailed walk-around pointing out all the important external features of Concorde. Then we see the pre-flight checks and it's off to JFK.

There is no 'dumping down' on this programme, just clear, well-communicated detail on every aspect of flying Concorde!!

Bevan lewis

After I heard about the Air France Concorde crash, I took a look at your BA Concorde programme to get a good look at what goes on during take-off as well as an explanation of the engine air intake and landing gear area.

You can't beat the coverage of the Concorde programme to get a complete understanding of the aircraft.

As far as I am concerned, this programme sets the standard for all other programmes of large transport category aircraft.
