I was very fortunate to get to ride Concorde at Oshkosh 88, and I took along a VHS video camera to record the 1 hour trip.

It was an awesome ride to say the least... and they even let us come up to cockpit while in flight - and you can see that on the video!

Take a few minutes and watch my trip on Concorde at Oshkosh 88!

Great video, Martt - thanks for sharing it here!

Not taking a flight on Concorde is one of my few regrets. We don't seem to have a "jealous" emoticon, but you get the idea ...

Hal...

I have my dad to thank for me having the chance to ride Concorde.  He was EAA # 1146 and a great dad. 

It was just over a year ago that he passed away.

I know you saw my tribute to my dad, Robert Clupper and his amazing life in the sky but I thought others might want to see it as well.

Thanx : )

Thanks for posting.  I saw "your" Concorde in person a couple of weeks ago at the Museum of Flight in Scotland (where I used to work).

Adam...

Wow, that's pretty cool you got to see G-BOAA recently, and that you used to work at that museum. 

I hope she was looking good : )

That Concorde ride definitely ranks right up there as one of my greatest OSH moments ever (out of 32 years of OSH moments!)
