Trip Report



At the door of  the Dream machine


Inside the Dream machine :-)

The seat next to the window is my very seat

and home for the next 3 ½ hrs, seat 26D :-)


The seat was padded and made out of either navy blue leather or PVC, I wasn’t 100% sure which stuff it was made of  (as PVC can be made to look and feel like leather) but it was an extremely comfortable and figure hugging seat.


I wished I had 2 of these as front seats for my car as these seats where that good…… The only seats which come close to how comfortable the Concorde seats where are the seats in a Ford Sapphire RS Cosworth.

Ladies and Gentlemen this is Captain Andy Mills welcome aboard our Concorde flight to New York this evening.


Just getting dark now but err will be light by the time we get to New York.

I don’t know what the above means (as I can't speak French) but it sounded very "Eurovision song contest", very international, exciting and exotic…… It felt great and had a very traveller type atmosphere, I was also expecting some one  to say Norvege dix pwa :-)
