Trip Report



View from my seat out of Concorde’s window just after push back

Inside the Dream machine :-)


I looked out of my window and saw the back part of huge delta wing jutting out 1/4 of way to the horizon, the sky was black outside but the wing could still be clearly seen as white with small star like airport lights reflecting off its glossy white surface, further a field of the wing the area around Concorde was all lit up with white light coming from the street lights around our area.


I could see the east side of Terminal 4, I could see other planes and things which where currently around Concorde’s drive way and parking bay area all lit up including Mr Blobby the fat 747.

A few minutes later one of the stewardesses was using large white tongs and handing out small wet towels

My first video diary  entry

I said

:-

Ok… here I am …. on Concorde .... ready for take off … I cant believe that I’m here………….. I feel excited and calm ……….. feel like a 5 year old kid in sweet shop ……… seat next to me is empty……


So we currently have 92 passengers …. out of 100 the plane can take …….


Any way I’ll sign off for now and err I’ll come back later on in due course …… bye.
