5.0 out of 5 stars Details of early commecial days, 13 Mar. 2011
This one is very focused on Concorde entry in service at British Airways, with Mr. Calvert giving LOTS of details on what was going on back in the early commercial operations, explaining everything regarding this new phase after flight testing (that is thoroughly depicted in Brian Trubshaw's book, Concorde: The Inside Story).

A must have for Concorde fans interested in operational details.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pilot and plane, 13 Mar. 2011
Mr. Trubshaw's book is simply amazing, with the story being told from one of the guys that wrote it!

It has a LOT of details regarding the flight testing campaign and some not-so-known stories, simply amazing

This book is a MUST for the hardcore Concorde fans and those who are interested in the Concorde Flight Testing period. But, I believe it may be too much for aviation enthusiasts not so curious about Concorde.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all, 13 Mar. 2011
Concorde history told in pictures: the title really says it all! This one is a MUST for any Concorde fan, along Orlebar's book. TONS of pictures, many of them new to me, and 90% of them in HIGH QUALITY, even some old ones from the 60s and 70s look very nice, not washed out. The author has clearly given attention to the photos so they could look awesome.

Very nice photos with closeups and different situations, like the cabin without seats and carpet, Concorde without paint, the 1st protoype 1968 roll-out and some others.

This book is mandatory to any Concorde fan, and a very nice gift to any aviation fan not so interested in the politics behind Concorde birth and life.

For a nice picture and history text, I recommend Concorde, and for a more in-depth story and operational details, the other mandatory book by Christopher Orlebar: The Concorde Story: 21 Years in Service (Civil aircraft).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book, specially for non-fans, 13 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Concorde Story (Hardcover)
I liked this small book. My version has a slightly different cover, same pic but with different titles.

There are a LOT of pictures, some of them in questionable quality, like the one of the last landing ever, very pixelated. The Concorde history is told in a very short way, as most of the book are photos. I was surprised to see a lot of new pictures, such as the rare all-white British-built Concordes.

Recommended to HARDCORE Concorde fans and as a gift to ANY aviation fan. Not-so-curious Concorde fans may not get so enthusiastic about it.

Regarding the size, the hardcover has the almost exact length, height and thcikness of a DVD plastic cover, with the pages being a bit smaller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 13 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Concorde (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed this book and I'd recommend to non-fans!

The history is detailed, but doesn't get into technical hardcore details. If you're not used to aviation vocabulary and concepts, you may have some difficulties to understand what's going on, some of them due to Concorde peculiarities, but nothing that will disappoint you.

I was happy to see different pictures from the ones we're most used to, and it was very nice to read some episodes of Concorde history with much more details on politics and early development. The operational details are there, but nothing like Orlebar's book.

I recommend this book to all Concorde fans, and it's a nice gift to aviation fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice book but not essential, 13 Mar. 2011
I highly agree with Mr. Morgan review.

The good points in this book are some never before seeen pictures, and the description of how they we're taken. As an aviation spotter, I enjoyed them a lot, but they're a tad short and not technical at all.

A few photos are clearly manipulated and some look suspicious, without any description of information.

It contains a resumed version of Concorde history with chapters as a guideline and a way to group the photographs, a good solution in my opinion.

I enjoyed the book, but would only recommend to real hardcore Concorde fans. The sensation after reading is that it could have more and bigger photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different approach, 22 Aug. 2010
This book is great.

It has many interesting photos not present in The Concorde Story: 21 Years in Service (Civil aircraft) neither on the internet!
Technical details in incredible quantity, explaining why G-BOAG had a different battery system from the other BA Concordes, for example.

Highly recommended for Concorde hardcore fans and also for those people curious on the whys of machines, planes, cars, etc.


Live in London: The 30th Anniversary Concert
Live in London: The 30th Anniversary Concert
Price: £15.44

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and memorable concert, 22 July 2010
Incognito live concerts are just awesome. This record is very polished and lacks the "rawness" and comments between the songs found in the Tokyo live concert (also released as album) and in Incognito bootlegs.

But, it's simply great. The band perfectly synchronized, fantastic musicians and incredible songs: It's hard to pinpoint some as top something. Ain't no Mountain version... speechless!

A must-have for Incognito fans, a you-should-have for Jazz+Funk lovers.
