The Four Concordes – Filton Flypast. On 21 January 1986, Concorde celebrated 10 years in commercial service and had accumulated 71,000 supersonic flying hours. To celebrate those 10 years, four Concordes took off from Heathrow to overfly Filton in Bristol, the home of Concorde’s birthplace. This photo shows the four Concordes in the echelon formation flying over the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge where a huge crowd of spectators had gathered to see them. This photo was taken on Christmas Eve in 1985 by BA photographer Adrian Meredith from a Lear Jet chasing alongside the Concordes, and has been signed by two of the original senior Concorde Captains John Eames in G-BOAC and John Hutchinson in G-BOAG. Supplied framed. Measures 25x21”.

Adrian Meredith

Adrian Meredith has been an aviation photographer for more than 25 years and has won many prestigious awards. Whilst working as the senior in-house photographer for British Airways he made the suggestion of launching four Concordes in succession to create various airborne formation images. BA loved the idea but arranging for all four Concordes to be available at the same time presented quite a challenge! Adrian was also given the prestigious assignment of photographing the Queen Mother on Concorde to celebrate her 85th Birthday.

Concorde

Concorde made her first test flight on 2 March 1969, and 'went supersonic' on 1 October the same year. She then entered service with British Airways and Air France in 1976 and took her last commercial flight on 24 October 2003, having completed over 50,000 flights.
