The Concorde Story – Documentary

The AĆ©rospatiale-BAC Concorde, a marvel of modern air travel. Sure, it crossed the pond (NY – Europe) in like 3 hours going twice as fast the speed of sound, but who cares about those technological feats. The real miracle was getting the French and the English to work on a project together. I never actually flew in a Concorde, but I did go inside the once outside the Air Museum in Seattle.
