As Concorde G-BOAF accelerates into the setting sun her speed will soon outpace the earth’s rotation. The 100 passengers will now have the unforgettable experience of watching the sun rising from the west. At 50,000 feet, the cruising speed of Mach 2 (1,320 mph) is reached; but the climb gently continues towards 60,000 feet. Here, on the threshold of space, the passengers will dine. Three and a half hours after take-off from London, Concorde reaches New York. On 26th November 2003 this aircraft returned to its first home, Filton, Bristol - probably never to fly again.
