Have you ever wondered what a Concorde looks like inside?
The Museum of Flight in Scotland has a nifty section on their website where you can peer into the cockpit and cabin of a Concorde using 360º imaging technology. For those in my boat, who never took a ride on the Concorde before its 2003 retirement, this website gives us a little better idea of what the aircraft would have been like inside, at least on British Airways.
While we’re on the subject of the Concorde, I recently saw a well-crafted documentary about the Concorde program on the Smithsonian Channel. Not only did it discuss the technical side of the aircraft and critically examine the crash investigations, it also dwelled heavily on the political side of the program–a very appealing angle to a political junkie like myself. If you haven’t seen it, TIVO it or catch it on Tuesday (10/12) at 10:30a ET or two weeks from Sunday (10/24) at 3:00p ET.
The Museum of Flight link above also contains 360º views of other aircraft, including the Jaguar Fighter Bomber, Avro Vulcan, and DeHavilland Comet.
The Museum of Flight in Seattle has a BA Concorde you can walk through in real life. Worth checking out…
