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!
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!
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...
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!
This is the third one I've bought they just keep getting better .
Will be buying more!
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?
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
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
Without doubt one of the most in depth programme available.
The features and background of this remarkable aircraft is astounding.
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.
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
What a classic, 5 hours and I still can't get enough!
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.
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
Wow, just Wow
This is by far the best programme of its kind ever produced in my opinion.
Dave, Roger & Les brilliant!
Really excellent programme!
The best so far!
Technical cover is excellent allowing you to learn a lot about the Concorde.
Very good value.
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!!!!!!!!
Worth every penny - for 5 hours - works out at about a penny a minute!
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.
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!!
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.
