About the Book
This book describes in detail for the flying public, as well as for the pilot, how dramatically different Concorde is from other aircraft. The ballet executed by the Captain, First Officer, and Flight Engineer on a flight from London to New York is included, with the same flight as seen from a passanger's point of view. Unique insider stories, never before published, give the Concorde enthusiast a perspective available nowhere else. While commercial flights ended in Octover 2003, the opportunity may arise to fly Concorde once again.
"Reading George Denniston's well-researched notes on flying Concorde reminded me of the privileged time I spent flying such a technological marvel that Concorde indeed was, from the adrenalin rush of the takeoff to the unique experience of flying faster than a bullet, leaving London in the darkness of a winter's evening, catching the sun as it rose in the west and landing in New York before I had left London!"
-Richard Westray, Concorde Pilot
