Transferring fuel from rear fuel tank to forward fuel tanks
during our deceleration.
And we started to gently decelerate…………
As we slowed down the center of gravity slowly and gently moved forward from the back of Concorde to the middle of Concorde
= Lift above Concorde
= Gravity below Concorde
While Peter transferred fuel from the back of Concorde to the front (to balance Concorde’s gravity), I was expecting to feel the plane lurch forward a bit, I was expecting to hear a gurgling, groaning sound, I was expecting to feel the pipes under my feet to vibrate as the fuel was transferred through them.
Decelerating - Mach 2 Subsonic
Live Tracking Data - Jetinder
Below is a sample of tracking data of my flight taken by friends from around 30 minutes before I landed, by the time this data was taken Sparky had already landed at JFK, I think he landed at around 4.35pm New York time and was waiting for me.
Jetinder at Point A (South of Newfoundland)
at 16:15 EDT (22:15 UK time)
Jetinder at Point B (South of Cape Cod, Massachusetts)
at 16:51 EDT (21:51 UK Time)
Time to get from A to B: 36 minutes
The nose and visor was moved from supersonic to subsonic flight position
