    Can you provide more info on the "pencil" landing aid?........like where/how was it attached, why, how it worked, etc.

    The Pencil is attached directly over the centre of the Nose so when the Nose is Lowerd to Landing Position 12.5 Degrees it casts a Shadow on the End of the runway.

    There are Three LCD Projectors above and Behind the Cokpit the Centre one Casts the Shadow for the Pencil!

    If you Lign that Shadow up with the Runway Centre Line you will Land rite inn the middle of the Runway!.


    It is Still Attached and is used on a Weekly Bassis. I am not sure how it was Attached as i was not Present the Day it was Fitted!

    Thanks Bone! Somehow I when you said, ..."as fitted by real Concorde pilots" I was thinking they did this on the real plane too, not just the sim - duh!! It's still early here so I'll wake up shortly.

    I had the pleasure some time ago to attend a fascinating talk given by the captain who flew the very last Concorde flight. That was from Heathrow to Bristol Filton where it is now preserved. He showed a number of photos and videos that were not at that time released to the public domain.

    It's a pity that the aircraft was eventually taken out of service although I'm not sorry to say goodbye to the horrendous noise it made when it passed over my house about 3 minutes after takeoff.

    Concorde was Throttled back 3 Minutes after Take OFF So the RE-HEATS would have been OFF if they had been on you would have been Deafend a lot More and the RE-Heats would have lit up your Night Time a lot!

    Night take OFF
