As some of you know, the lovely Mrs71 bought me the PSS Concorde professional edition for Christmas.
Now, subsonic short haul flights have been no real problem.
I've been struggling to get it above FL320 before it pitches right up onto it's tail, stalls, and falls out of the sky. Having read the book and watched the DVD until my eyes almost bled I had another go today at the EGLL-TBPB flightplan I created months ago. Normally I can't get to Land's End without an epic fail. This morning Concorde had a hissy fit. Everytime I got it ready to taxy the fuel load defaulted to zero and everything died. Finally at 1330 BST I got the thing to keep it's fuel and actually lift off from 27L. I wasn't expecting to complete the flight, or even get past Cornwall but..............
A couple of panel shots showing the altitude and speed.
It didn't all go without incident, about 40 miles from Adams engine no2 flamed out so I had to land on only 3 runiing engines. Never mind though, I actually managed a full transatlantic at Mach2.
Approach from the VC. Ignore the PAPIs, I was bang on the glideslope but for some reason I always get 4 whites from this view
And 2 from the moment of touchdown.
VICTORY IS MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
