A Concorde Go-Around


There are thousands and thousands of videos on the web showing airplanes landing, taking off, going around, etc. Generally, even I don’t find these that interesting to watch, but this one is great. It’s a short, 32 second video of a Concorde descending in a crosswind and then aborting the landing and going around.

There’s something incredible about watching that plane just hang in the air as if being held by a string before you see smoke belching from the engines as the airplane begins to climb again. I miss that plane.
