Artist's Description

Yep, there’s something of a little story I’m doing with these images involving Concorde, sort of following the flight from point to point throughout its journey from London Heathrow to New York JFK. Here we see the mighty supersonic beauty being pushed back from the gate whilst the Flight Crew droop the nose and extend the ailerons as part of the Pre-Flight Checklist.

Also added to the mix, an arriving Eastern Airlines Airbus A300B4, just to make the scene look a little busier. It should be noted that Eastern was in fact the first US carrier to purchase an Airbus aircraft, adding these classic European aircraft to their fleet in 1977. It’s interesting how today Airbus has such a major presence in many larger American air companies, with US Airways (later American Airlines), JetBlue, Northwest (later Delta), and many other major carriers being avid users of these aircraft in both the past and present.
