    Sure you can - just use Google Maps to check up on her once in a while

    WOW, Jetinder,

    Hi Senga

    Its good to hear from you and its good to be on here :)

    I heard about this forum on the internet and decided to join as you all sound like a great bunch of people :) :)

    I do love Concorde.

    From age 6 to age 34 3/4 i chased her around Heathrow Airport and took countless photos of her.

    On 21 Oct 2003 (thanks to my Concorde friends in the UK and USA) I did fly on her and loved every second of it.:)

    When i got home i wrote a huge 500 page trip report about how it all happened and the flight including transcripts between my pilots + Heathrow ATC and as we came in to JFK transcripts between my pilots + JFK ATC.

    Although my flight happened 4 1/2 years ago I need to find time to put it all on the internet as I feel Concorde belongs to the world. Before memories fade every one who flew on her or worked on her should put their memories down on paper so people of the future can understand what Concorde really was as Concorde was unique.

    By saying the above I'm not trying to upset any one, this topic has been seen over 6000 times and it shows every one loves Concorde :)

    In a few years time Richard Branson will be flying people in to short low earth orbit trips. (Similar to Alan Shepard's Mercury-Redstone flights). The people who fly these trips should write down or video their experiences as I would love to hear how they felt for their first time in space.

    I don't think you've upset anyone here Jetinder. I'd like to hear of these unique efforts used to fly on the Concorde, as I'm sure others would. I'd bet it's a helluva story. Anyway, you've been nothing but respectful and concerned, and your posts have truly shown your love of flight and more specifically of the Concorde.

    I know Jez Homer he is one of my best friends and is one of the nicest, warmest and most genuine people you'll ever meet :)

    In 2003 me and Jez use to chase Concorde around Heathrow, you're right he loves Concorde as much as me, his Concorde videos are great.

    I never heard of Jez repainting real Concordes, i guess you mean he spent he lot of time building and re-painting Concorde models (as kids I guess we all did that a lot).

    At Manchester Airport their's a guy called Neil Lomax, like Jez he is one of my best friends and he looks after G-BOAC (the Concorde next to the airport).

    Yes,
    I figured you would know him. Yes is a very cool guy.
    He flew on the Concorde to NYwhen he came to visit me once. He was sitting to my right when I flew into CGX a few years back.



    Jetinder I'll PM you as Phil suggested.

    Thats a great photo as you can almost physically feel how wet and cold the day was.

    Did any one get any photos of G-BOAD when New York had snow ?

    When she goes back to Intrepid will she have a tent put over her (when they know) bad weather is coming as her sisters have or will have hangers to go in to.
