The last of the 'Airport' series again stars George Kennedy as aviation disaster-prone Joe Patroni, this time having to contend with nuclear missiles, the French Air Force and the threat of the plane splitting in two over the Alps!
A reporter tries to stop the crash of an aircraft after uncovering an airline's plot to save their business by sabotaging Concorde flights and have them decommissioned.
Highly interesting documentary Concorde's Last Flight tells the story of this eventually ill fated super plane, which could fly from London to New York in three and a half hours and travelled at twice the speed of sound but it was it's final flight and the crash just outside Paris of Air France Flight AF4590 that ultimately sealed its fate. Ten years later the French Courts are still trying to discover just what happened and who, if anyone, was to blame.
An Anglo-French production, directed by Pierre Jallaud, and for Open University Productions. This is a background sketch on the about-to-be-unveiled supersonic airplane.
When a plane carrying a legendary and recently found death ray machine from Siberia to Canada is hijacked and crashes in the remote mountains of Alaska, only a fearless government agent (Treat Williams) will risk his life to save the world. A modern B movie, reusing lots of footage from other films.

A Presidential candidate running against the Vice-President plans a trip to the Balkans to negotiate the release of American servicemen being held hostage. Before he leaves, he receives a disk documenting evidence that the Vice-President has been trying to revive the American economy by causing a war in the Balkans. He plans to show it to both sides in the hopes of ending the situation. However, Secret Service agents hijack the Concorde he is on and kill the pilots. It's up to an Air Force officer, nicknamed "Washout" because he can't fly a plane, to land the Concorde. Written by Leigh Roche

Take this exciting trip around the world aboard British Airways Concorde, at the amazing speed of mach 2. See what goes into all the planning, and the places they stop.
British Airways retired its Concorde on 24th October, 2003, thus ending the era of champagne and caviar at Mach 2 forever. During a career spanning 27 years Concorde carried around 4 million people and embarked on 50,000 flights. Thanks to its instantly recognisable design and state-of-the-art engineering, the aircraft became a national treasure that still evokes passion and pride 10 years after its permanent grounding. This programme takes viewers onboard one of Concorde's final flights to experience the thrill of supersonic travel. We'll go in the airport lounges, onto the plane, behind the scenes and hear from key players like chief Concorde pilot Mike Bannister, head of menu development David Stockton and chief engineer Claude Freeman, who all ensured Concorde was the ultimate flying experience.
Concorde: A Supersonic Story follows the story of the most glamorous aeroplane ever built - told by the people whose lives she touched. We uncover rare footage telling the forgotten row between the French and British governments over the spelling of Concorde which threatened to derail the whole project.
One of the greatest aeronautical achievements of all time, the supersonic Concorde passenger jet flies at twice the speed of sound. This documentary chronicles the history of the Concorde from the plane's controversial development process to its limited use shuttling wealthy passengers on trans-Atlantic flights and the events that led to its decommission. Despite its problems, the Concorde remains a shining symbol of technological accomplishment.
Taken from an automobile. This picture was taken during the fashionable driving hour, making a complete circle of the Place de la Concorde, passing hundreds of carriages and busses. The beginning of the picture shows the historical church of the Madeleine in the background, the picture ending by approaching and running under the main entrance to the Paris Exposition.
Place De La Concorde was Jean Michel Jarre's first concert, held on July 14, 1979, celebrating the Bastille Day. One million spectators attended this concert, setting up a new record for Jean-Michel to the Guinness Book of Records.
