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.

PART 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!

I had the original Concorde Videos way back. So when ITVV annouced that we could now stream them I knew it was time to revisit an old friend.

Concorde is my "eye candy" of an aircraft. So elligent, powerful and stunning.

David and Roger are simply brilliant. They make understanding Concorde so straught forward. Not forgetting Les who minds the shop so to speak.

I have lost count of how many times I have watched this programme now but I never tire of watching it.

ITVV have clearly put some work into digitally enhancing this programme as the quality is amazing.

Part one is a must watch as well. You even get the chance to be close and personal outside the hanger with G-BOAF

Enjoy

After Concorde Part One I thought that we would not learn much in Part Two - how wrong I was.

Roger and Dave really go to town on the information front.

There is so much to this aircraft. But it's great entertainment getting to know Concorde - what a truly beautiful airliner she really is.

The presentation by the crew on both Part One and Part Two is simply outstanding.

I loved seeing us reach Mach II - I felt I was with the crew on the jump seat.

Thanks ITVV for an outstanding programme.

The streaming service simply works without a hitch - brilliant.
