The Last Concorde

on BBC One London

On 9 April 1969, the first British Concorde made its maiden flight from Filton. £1,600-million has been spent on this Franco-British project but on 20 April 1979, the last plane came off the production line and made a brief two-hour flight.
For the workers at Filton it's the end of the Concorde era. Two of these plane workers, Alan Radford and Wally Williams, tell what it's been like working on the supersonic plane over the last decade.
