Aircraft history

 

Concorde 208’s first flight on May 18th, 1976 was under the command of BAC Test Pilot Captain Edward " Eddie " McNamara D.F.C., Q.C.V.S. and took 3 hours and 32 minutes, from Filton to R.A.F. Fairford ( Gloucestershire ) via the Bay of Biscay*. It reached a top speed of Mach 2.05 at a height of 63,500 feet. Twelve other BAC test / development flights took place before the aircraft was ready for delivery to British Airways.

 

G - BOAB was the third Concorde to be delivered to British Airways on January 14th, 1976, with a 1 hour and 30 minutes' flight from R.A.F. Fairford. Touch and go landings were made at both Gatwick Airport ( Crawley, West Sussex, England ) and Heathrow Airport ( Hillingdon, london, England ) during the flight by the British Airways crew of Captain Anthony R. " Tony " Meadows ( circa 1935 - 2019 ) and Captain Brian Owen Walpole O.B.E., F.R.AeS.

 

On January 12th, 1979, the aircraft was re - registered as G - N94AB / N94AB by British Airways / Braniff International. Alpha Bravo is eventually re - registered G - BOAB by British Airways on September 17th, 1980. On September 11th, 1984, she sets a distance record for an airliner with a 4,565 flight from Washington, D.C. ( United States ) to Nice ( Alpes - Maritimes, France ). On November 16th, 1984, she flies the inaugural charter service from London to Seattle ( Washington, United States ) via New York ( United States ).

 

On August 18th, 2000, Alpha Bravo made its final flight : John F. Kennedy International Airport ( Queens, New York City, United States ) to Heathrow Airport ( Flight No. BA002P ). This aircraft was not given the post Paris crash modifications in time and never returned to service. The aircraft’s final flight was a positioning flight back to Heathrow, on the evening before the fleet’s Certificates of air - worthiness were to be officially removed, under the command of Captain L.D. " Les " Brodie. The aircraft was next in line for inter - check and would have been the 6th British Airways aircraft back in service. As it was the airline only required five aircraft, therefore G - BOAB was never modified and never flew again.
