Reply:   Hi Luke. I think most people would agree with you. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely this will ever happen but we can all live in hope!

Fantastic site to an inspirational Aircraft However after considerable research I feel you have drastically over estimated the amount of work required to re obtain Air worthiness certification. Having worked with CAA for the past 30 odd years I am fully aware that Manchester Airports Concorde G-BOAC was serviced within 33 hrs of its last flight and a examination carried out in October 2007 found that this particular Airframe was is Excellent condition. After consulting with colleges we fell a time frame of around 80-120 hrs is possible to return this to Operational Condition. As to wether this may ever happen I agree it is Highly Unlikely and your only other minor error was that there are currently 3 Certified Pilots and 2 Flight Engineer Available All of whom passed current medicals last month.

Reply:   Hi 'billy'! On the subject of RTF, I don't really want to get into a long discussion on here as that's not what this site is about and besides, there are much better mediums existing on the web already for that! However, in response to the points you raised, as I've mentioned on the 'FAQ' page, without support/consent from Airbus the airworthiness certificate will not be forthcoming. Also, as things stand, without the required infrastructure in place anymore (i.e. trained engineers, maintenance equipment and spares and OEMs), none of the Concordes can be returned to operational condition, irrespective of their current condition.

With regards to certified flight crew, I was unaware that any still existed. How do they keep their ratings current and keep up to scratch on drills and procedures without access to a CAA approved simulator? None of these guys have flown the type since 2003! Presumably sometime in the not too distant future these ratings will expire and unfortunately the facilities and personnel required to re-certify them no longer exist.

Anyway, thanks for the kind comments about the site. It's much appreciated!

Flew British Airways Concorde to Barbados in February 1988 ex LHR via SNN. Excellent flight and service(G-BOAF). Again on my 40th (G-BOAD) A very special and beautiful British aircraft, articulate in performance and engineering. Many thanks to all BA crew of BA273 LHR-BGI 28 February 1988 for making my trip a very memorable occasion in my life.

I would just like to say that what I and all of my customers who have linked to this web site through ours have seen is a remarkable achievement. From just a pile for parts to an aircraft that will fly the flag for Concorde and Brooklands forever. We at Databits will keep your link to the Brooklands Concorde for as long as our site is active. Well Done to ALL. I will be back to visit again soon. Hopefully for a photo shoot with my friends Aston Martin Ulster 1934 Team Car LM15 ( Raced at Brooklands ) under Concorde's nose. The Old to New.

HI, My wife and I visited Concorde back in June ( we were the 2 Australians!!) and it was a thrill to see what had been done after watching on the internet from afar. Congratulations on all the hard work that has gone into the project, especially in the last few weeks to allow Concorde to open. We hope to see the finished product when next we are in the UK Best wishes

Congratulations to everyone involved in the restoration on what you have achieved, I can't believe that it is the same plane I saw arriving at Brooklands in June 2004. The pictures that I have seen from the opening day yesterday are truely amazing . You have all helped to save part of our history.

Reply:   Hi Philipp. The forum over at concordesst.com has a dedicated section for people interested in buying and selling Concorde memorabilia. I suggest you try posting on there about your shirt as a lot more people will read about it than will on my guestbook. The forum can be found here: http://p102.ezboard.com/bconcordesst

Very smart website, now on my list of daily visited sites alongside speedbirds and sst. People say my love all all things Concorde goes too far, but to fly is to believe. See 'Gone In 62 seconds'. I have a personal target of visiting every retired Concorde. Four down, but so far have not been to Brooklands. See you there. Keep up the good work.
