Registration/Serial No. | Remarks & Notes
G-BOAG (cn 214) This Concorde was already posted by NWFEDEX757, but this shot gives a little bit more view of the underside of the Concorde during its demo at the Cleveland Air Show at BKL. They flew this aircraft pretty aggressively during the demo, making sharp banks. I remember the Air Boss/Tower asking them to end their performance, but the BA pilots kept asking for "just one more pass". Happily, they obliged. What an incredible plane. I would have loved to see it perform a no payload maximum performance climb- bet that would have been something!
