5.0 out of 5 stars Concorde - 27 Years of Supersonic Flight 4 Dec 2003
By A Customer
This is an interesting one. It features three whole 1 hour programmes and two audio documentaries as well as some great extras. It is made in NTSC Region 0 which can be played on most PAL but not the very old ones which will only play it in B&W. Overall an absolute bargain for 4 hours worth at only 14.99

This is a fantastic film over 4 hours long and unlike most other releases, Fast Forward Productions have all new footage. A great watch highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent DVD by Quine-Leap Productions! 6 Dec 2004
When presenter Adrian Quine looks straight into camera at the start of this lavish production, and declares 'we're going to take you on a journey - a journey for the imagination', you know it's time to strap yourself in and prepare for lift-off!

Quine's superb documentary offers aviation buffs and casual observers alike, the opportunity to understand the operations of Concorde on a new level. With the expert insight of Chief Pilot, Captain Mike Bannister, viewers can get answers to questions that are ignored in similar films - for example, we all know that Concorde's a beautiful beast, but what's she like to fly? Mike Bannister provides the answer, taking viewers on spectacular tour of the aircraft in Heathrow's maintenance hanger G047, and pointing out some of the features that make this majestic bird so special (like the four Rolls-Royce/SNECMA 693 power-plants.) As the film goes on, Captain Bannister makes a number of further appearances, explaining to viewers the intricacies of Concorde's systems and the idiosyncrasies of her operation. In a particularly interesting section, Bannister explains the necessity to reduce thrust-levels on climb out from New York's Kennedy airport - in order to be 'good neighbours' to those on the ground. Bannister is excellent in explaining to us, the viewer, what Concorde crews have to do in their jobs, to ensure the smooth running of the aircraft, day in, day out.

Quine's input is similarly impressive. His informative, descriptive approach to his presenting makes me wonder why we don't see Mr. Quine on our screens more often.

A great product especially as you get three other recent concorde programmes free of charge on the DVD. Great flight deck views and very professionally done. A bargain for 4 hours worth of material and a great souvenir

After contacting both the author and distributor of this title, I was confirmed that, due to the high cost of reproducing another batch of DVD9, this title is now sold as a DVD-R+ only, however the price is still the same !
The DVD only comes with a color photocopy of the original cover and, as we all know, the life expectancy of these discs, unlike the regular silver discs, are much shorter.
Copy of the email of the producer is available if necessary. Do not buy, try to find an old copy pre-2011 instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concorde - 27 years of Supersonic flight 17 Aug 2004
By A Customer
This full colour DVD is 4 hour long and actually features 4 programmes covering every aspect of Concorde. For 14.99 this is a real bargain and includes lots of footage from aboard the plane and in the cockpit. A real must for any Concorde fan

5.0 out of 5 stars One of our greatest achievements. 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Good to see how we Brits led in aviation history for many years. Frankly this amazing plane should still be flying. It wasn't the plane itself's fault that it crashed! Surrounding circumstances were the main culprit. Good buy. Fascinating viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great extras 11 Nov 2003
By A Customer
The main program was rather boring - too much of sightseeing, too little of plane shots. I ended up fastforwarding over the lengthy blah-blah about the destinations. There could be long minutes without seeing one single Concorde. The extras, though, were really great, plenty of great footage - I liked those a lot. Hence my overall rating of 4/5. I think it was worth the money.

I was disappointed to find that the footage did not really support the title in suggesting that the concorde era was now over. Read more
