Concorde Owners' Workshop Manual PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Concorde Owners' Workshop Manual free pdf Written by two of British Airways' most experienced Concorde flight crew, the Concorde Manual is the latest aircraft manual from Haynes, following on from the acclaim received by the Spitfire Manual. Concentrating on the technical and engineering aspects of Concorde, this manual gives rare insights into owning, operating, servicing and flying the supersonic airliner. Although the British and French Concorde fleets were prematurely retired in 2003, interest in this marvel of design and technology remains undiminished and all who admire Concorde will relish the unique information provided in this innovative title.Between them the co-authors, Dave Leney (pilot) and David Macdonald (flight engineer) have more than 35 years of flying experience on Concorde. For the "Haynes Concorde Manual" the authors were given special access to the Concorde flight simulator at Brooklands, Surrey, and to the preserved Concorde, G-BOAF, at Filton in Bristol, to recreate and photograph aspects of Concorde engineering and flight deck operations. The pictorial coverage of flight deck procedures is particularly comprehensive, providing an impressive level of detail hitherto unseen in print.The Anglo-French Concorde supersonic passenger transport is probably the most famous airliner in history. Its glamour was exceeded only by its speed of more than Mach 2 - twice the speed of sound. Concorde was able to cross the Atlantic from London to New York in little more than three hours, cutting the journey time of conventional subsonic airliners by more than half.In 2003, when the British and French Concorde fleets were prematurely retired from service, so ended a unique era in passenger travel and supersonic passenger aircraft design. Although the futuristic shape of Concorde no longer graces the skies, popular interest in this marvel of aeronautical design is undiminished.
