Concorde Zusammenfassung

Concorde: The thrilling account of history's most extraordinary airliner Mike Bannister

The definitive account of the rise and fall of the iconic Concorde plane from British Airways' former Chief Concorde Pilot


For over a quarter of a century, Concorde was the world's only successful supersonic airliner, carrying passengers at speeds faster than a rifle bullet - and at heights that provided a glimpse of the edge of space.

As Chief Concorde Pilot for British Airways, Mike Bannister knows her line no one else. From displaying Concorde with the Red Arrows over London to landing her back at Heathrow in her last scheduled flight in October 2003, he has seen Concorde's full journey.

Now he shares the inside story of this unique and awe-inspiring aircraft for the first time, including his role in the investigation to uncover what really happened when Concorde fell to earth on 25th July 2000.

Loved and missed like no other aeroplane, Concorde is part celebration, part history, part detective story and part courtroom drama.

Above all it is a thrilling, revelatory, intimate and insightful account by the man who knew her best.
