We already wrote a couple of articles about the Concorde and the supersonic era. If you want to know more about the topic, don’t miss the ZDF special: “Mythos Concorde”.

The two-part documentary is a must for all aviation enthusiasts. Among the people to talk to are Concorde test pilot Jean Pinet, the long-time Concorde pilot Mike Bannister and Concorde approval engineer Dominique Berger.

Part 1: Race in the sky (German TV-Show)

For decades the Concorde fascinated people. It was the first and only passenger aircraft to offer scheduled flights at supersonic speed. The first part of the two-part documentary on ZDF reports on the origins of the British-French aircraft. It also examines the development of Soviet and American competitor products.

Part 2: Triumph and tragedy (German TV-Show)

With the Concorde it was possible to fly from Paris to New York in less than three hours. The planes were considered very safe and attracted thousands of passengers – until the tragic crash of a plane in 2000. The second part of the documentary deals with the rise and fall of these revolutionary supersonic planes. They flew until 2003, when their operation was finally stopped.

Enjoy the exciting documentaries!
