What it felt like to fly Concorde
The best part was that you could stand on the armrest and at that moment, besides the astronauts, you were the highest person in the world. Flight attendants were actually use to people doing it.
The plane was more a rocket than a plane. You can watch the plane hit Mach 2 from your seat Not the most comfortable but fun!
Also had a private walk though when the Air France plane came to Hawaii. It was open by invitation, I was late, so I got a private tour. The cockpit looked more like the space shuttle rather than a plane. I wish it were still flying.
Thanks for sharing your memories with us.
sigh... wish I could have seen it. Here's hoping for bigger and better to come sometime in the future!
I've been in a few of them at museums and they are right, not luxurious and comfy. I'm sure the service was amazing but don't think you were getting some big, squishy seat for the ride. I'm not a large person and the aisle is barely wider than me if I remember correctly. I would have loved the chance to experience it in motion though.
Indeed, there could be even bigger and better in the future. Fingers crossed.
Thanks for sharing your memories with us, yes, it would have been very nice to experience at least once the Concorde while flying, the service must have been outstanding while reaching Mach 2 speeds. Amazing. It was all about the speed I guess, plus the special touches associated with the aircraft.
I flew one of the last Concorde flights. It was a great experience watching the mach levels go up, but I much prefer the comfort of a good international first class flight even though it is not as quick.
I'm glad you could experience the Concorde, it must have been amazing to travel at such speeds.
