Dick "flying" the Concorde
Thursday, March 11, 2010 - Bridgetown, Barbados
Before it quit flying in 2003, the Concorde had four places on its regular route: Paris, London, New York and Barbados. Barbados bid for and won possession of one of the planes which today is housed in a dedicated hangar and museum. We had tickets to fly the Concorde at the time of the 2003 crash... …unfortunately the Concorde ceased commercial operation after the crash so we never got our supersconic ride.
Today Regent hosted an event at the Concorde Experience for passengers on the full South America trip. We were impressed with the aircraft display and some of the exhibits, Dick “flew” the simulator and we got to sit in the passenger cabin. Not quite the Concorde adventure we had anticipated in 2003 but a wonderful day nonetheless!
