A few photos from way back when, well the better ones at least. Concorde demonstrator F-BTSC at Kai Tak. Hope you find them of some interest.

what excellent memories Ian , thanks for posting them. It must have been quite an event for you (and the RAF) and a spectacular location for a take off.

I believe that was the only time the old air France scheme appeared on a Concorde - looks rather nice.

thanks again

Interesting memories - always nice to see old photos. Thanks Ian.

Re the old Air France livery- F-WTSA went into Heathrow in October 1974.
Me and my mate used to phone each other if anything interesting was going into LHR. The conversation went....

" Did you see the Air France Concorde ?"
" No, but I saw the British Airways one ".

As you guessed, Air France old style livery one side (port I recall), British Airways the other.

Very interesting to see a Concorde in that older Air France livery.
