Synopsis

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to work 11 miles above the Earth and on the edge of space, travelling at twice the speed of sound, serving champagne and caviar to passengers as they enjoyed their supersonic experience? Concorde was the aviation icon of our age and the ultimate in luxury air travel. Even the most frequent flyer felt the sense of occasion flying aboard Concorde and joining what became a very elite club. Sally Armstrong recounts her experiences of meeting the rich and famous, the royals and superstars, and flying private charters to exotic places. Her account documents a unique era of flight with all the adventure, glitz and glamour that it entailed. Reflecting on Concorde's heady beginnings during its first operations all the way through to the tragic Air France crash in 2001, the author tells the story of Concorde through the eyes of the cabin crew. Not just an aircraft, Concorde was a way of life now sadly consigned to the history books.
