I remember it was a Sunday afternoon when the normal programming was interrupted to show the French prototype's test flight. Raymond Baxter commentated and I was annoyed that they didn't show the rest of the film that I was watching afterwards.

I cannot believe you are putting the epoch making Concorde in the same sentence as the 747 mundane, bog standard, passenger transport, a simple progression from the 247, even if both, as aeroplanes which don't kill people, are a total waste of weapon carrying resources!
