Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Praised by many as one of the most astonishing technological wonders of the late 20th century, The Concorde passenger jet constitutes one of only two vehicles in existence to have flown at twice the speed of sound. Its actual completion struck many observers as something of a miracle, given the tumultuous obstacles that stood in its way - obstacles worthy of the most intense dramatic saga. Via a combination of interviews and archival footage, History Channel documentary Concorde Alpha-Delta: An Intrepid Journey explores the events that brought the Concorde to its final resting place at the Intrepid Air, Sea and Space Museum on the West Side of Manhattan; it also discusses the individuals who helped design the craft and bring it aloft for several decades, and the emotional connection that they experienced with the vehicle.
