CONCORDE - The New Era  


Concorde - The New Era, provides a fascinating insight into this extraordinary aircraft. Following the tragic accident in Paris in the summer of 2000 this programme goes behind the scenes, uncovering the additional safety measures that have been introduced to ensure that Concorde remains one of the safest aircraft in the skies today.

With unrivalled access from British Airways over a year, the programme also illustrates how evocative Concorde still is in her third decade of service. This film features unrivalled and exclusive footage from what is likely to be the last ever Concorde round the World charter. Including many exotic and unusual destinations, there is stunning footage of Concorde "take-off's" and landings from many camera angles including the cockpit.

CONCORDE - The Farewell

This all action programme provides a fascinating insight into the last Summer of Concorde services beginning in May 2003 with the final supersonic operations of Air France and concluding on the 26th November 2003 when the last ever Concorde flight landed at Filton, Concorde's birthplace, to bring about the end of an era.

 

BRACE YOURSELF!!! . . . An introduction sequence takes you, not just ‘airside’ at New York’s JFK airport, but onto the runway centre-line itself as Concorde hammers towards you! Thereafter an overview of the shock news’ of Concorde's retirement came about precedes a review of the last Air France flights, including the last ever Concorde charter, last Paris - New York services and subsequent museum flights to Washington, Le Bourget, Baden Baden and Toulouse (including an amazing voyage by barge down the Rhine). The British Airways story is then illustrated with the core New York service shown in detail (including on board footage) before scenes from the North American tour (the last BA Concorde into Washington DC). The ‘last week’ visits to Birmingham, Manchester and Cardiff, set the scene for extensive coverage of the emotive final day, 24th October 2003, when three BA Concordes converged on Heathrow to conclude Supersonic passenger services. ‘Alpha Echo’ - taking off for the last Trans-Atlantic flight and ‘Alpha Foxtrot’ - conclude the story.
