Issue Name: Concorde 30th Anniversary - Sheet 3 of 3
Producer: Buckingham Covers
Our third of three Concorde sheets celebrating its 30th anniversaries marks the first flights to New York, Singapore and Barbados. And in a fitting way to finish off the set, we have a special edition which has been signed by Captain Leslie Scott, who holds the world record for a West-East transatlantic flight!
A small number of this limited edition sheet were personally signed by Captain Leslie Scott, who together with Senior First Officer Tim Orchard and Senior Engineering Officer Rick Eades made history on the 7th February 1996, when he flew Concorde G-BOAD from New York to London in a record-breaking 2 hours, 52 minutes and 59 seconds. It is still the fastest ever transatlantic crossing by a commercial aircraft.
We also have an alternative limited signed edition available, which has been signed by:
Captain Leslie Scott Captain Mike Bannister - world record holder, East-West Capatin Barbara Harmer - the only female Concorde Captain
Again only a small number were multi-signed, and considering that our previous two Concorde sheets were sell-outs and their retail price doubled within weeks, don't hang around and order yours today!
