Trip Report



Mach 2 – yipeeeeeeeeeeee


In the Cabin


After we reached mach 1.7 we continued to accelerate and climb but with out the help of the afterburners, I quickly zoomed the camcorder on to the mach meters and slowly watched the mach meters go up every second to a higher mach number from  mach 1.7 ……… mach 1.75 …….. mach 1.8 ………. mach 1.85 ……… mach 1.9 ……. mach 1.95…… and at around 7.39pm at 52,500ft we finally reached the magic mach 2 (1,320 mph) but in all the excitement I forgot to press the record button on my camcorder to record this on tape.


As we reached mach 2 we where south of Cork off the south east coast of Ireland over a part of the Atlantic which merges with the Irish sea……. We continued accelerating deep in to the North Atlantic at twice the speed of sound.

When we reached mach 2 my heart and soul jumped with more joy and happiness……. Every one in Concorde suddenly loudly cheered and clapped as we had reached twice the speed of sound and where now flying at 58,000 feet, it was like a supersonic party up here  yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, yahooooooooooooooo


It made my whole day even more special……..I was extremely thrilled and very very very excited that we where now flying at twice the speed of sound…….I was extremely thrilled and excited that where flying at 1,320 mph yipeee yipeeeeee, yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, yahoooooooooooooooooo      


We where now flying at the 23 miles a minute……we where now flying faster than the earth spins this allowed us to zoom high across North Atlantic ocean and chase the sun across the sky, catch up with it and beat the sun to New York…….Try doing that in subsonic plane like a 747, 777 or an Airbus A380-hippo you simply cant do it as they are not as quick as Concorde…… eat your heart out SLOW subsonic planes, Concorde did some thing you can only dream of………….


I recorded more of my video dairy


Me talking to my video diary at mach 2

and said

:-

Ok this an update …. we’ve now reached mach 2 ….. where now flying higher…… faster … further, than I’ve ever done before  in my life. …….. The experience …….. is  out of this world ……… I can’t believe I’m flying this fast …… at the moment I feel grateful to people who got me up here ……. Thanks to them I’m here ………

{ While I was updating  the video diary the stewardess came over with my dinner   }

{            a chicken salad sandwich and put it on my table, I then continued               }

{                                                 with my video diary.                                                 }

Back to what I was saying …… the take off was the smoothest I’ve ever had ……on Ryan air flight it was just bumpy but Concorde was just so smooth. Where now travelling at mach 2 …… I’ll probably come round in the next few minutes to show you sunrise.


I don’t know where about’s on the planet … I don’t know how far across we are  over the Atlantic …….. I’m trying to get some …. Errrrrrr ……mach 2 meter shots but the stewardesses and people are in the way …… because where flying for the next couple of hours I’ll probably get the pictures done on the plane then.


At the moment I feel I am on cloud 9 ….. I feel content …… I feel happy ….. wish life was like this all the time ……. Hello dudes I want to thank my friends on Concorde SST I really appreciate it ….. I’m so happy I could jump around like a blue ass fly … but I aint gonna …….


When I got on to this plane ………I felt as dizzy as when you guys gave me the ticket …… but still believe that I’m here …… it feels so natural ……. To fly at this speed ….. I cant understand why they are phasing her out ………the other thing is I am G-BOAD …….


This plane holds the world transatlantic speed record all of which mean she made the fastest transatlantic crossing to the USA …….. basically I’m on the fastest passenger plane in the world ……. So I’m Jet by name and by nature (giggle giggle giggle)
