'In the old days we used to cross the Atlantic in 3 hours',
This review is from: Concorde - 27 Years of Supersonic Flight [DVD] (DVD)
Well as I realised how much I tend to check out the ratings before purchasing anything on-line I wanted to leave some feedback myself.
It has only been in the last few months that I became interested in Concorde and as she has been discontinued since 2003, I knew I couldn't watch her take flight anywhere soon (although I hear that she may be making an appearance over the opening ceremony of the London Olympics next year) so wanted a DVD (actually wanted Blu Ray but couldn't find it).
I plumped for this one and must say I am very pleased with it.
There is plenty of footage and extras on the disc and I could watch it all in colour. Yes, there are parts where the filming seems to concentrate on the destinations and of the lucky people who could afford and wanted to travel around the world, but it never completely removes itself away from the running theme of the Speedbird.
There is even a couple of audio clips (around half an hour each) discussing the origins of supersonic flight and the chance to experience the sounds of a Flight of Fantasy, taking off from Heathrow, jetting down over Land's End, before banking, heading up the English Channel and back around, hitting 57,000 feet and reaching Mach 2 on the way.
If you're heavily into the technical side more so then it may not be the DVD for you, but if you're just in awe of the craft then it is a very good behind the scenes documentary.
