This Limited Edition comes with a two-hour ITVV DVD of a Concorde Flight. Captain David Rowland and Senior Flight Engineer Roger Bricknell take you on a trip from London to New York with full commentary. Note that this is in PAL format.

You are taken around the outside of the aircraft to show you the many unique features that Concorde possesses. Roger gives you a detailed 'walk around' explaining what he is looking for during his inspection. David explains the nose and visor system which you see working.
You fly a trip from London Heathrow to New York's JFK airport. During the flight David and Roger guide you through the systems that enable this aircraft to fly at twice the speed of sound. You are shown in detail the procedures required to achieve and cruise at 1,350mph.
Other topics covered include checklist procedures, where the aircraft expands in flight, fuel transfer and the effects of centre of gravity changes and many more details. With crystal-clear audio utilising the aircraft's audio system. this is the most detailed look at Concorde that has ever been produced - the running time of this disc is over two hours!
