Video of G-BOAD having a shower
When this was complete the Engineers checked and prepared both planes for my flight.
The Engineering team was made up of 4 technicians
Looked after Concorde’s airframe and engines.
Looked after all of Concorde’s electrical systems
Looked after things like wheel changes, topping up engine oils and other normal every day
tasks associated with maintaining Concorde.
While both planes where in the hanger they walked around the aircraft and checked the following items
When they where happy each plane was towed outside the hanger and handed over to the movements team (the guys in those flat trucks which pulled Concorde) who towed Concorde over to Terminal 4.
Flat truck (under her nose) towing my backup Concorde G-BOAG.
While she and the backup Concorde where being towed to Terminal 4…… in the Concorde hanger the Engineering team checked the paper work and made sure that all the was work done, all the Ts had been crossed and all the Qs had been ticked and signed for so it was all legal and above board.
