Summary:
The Concorde was one of the greatest technological achievements that humankind has ever produced. The only passenger aircraft to fly at twice the speed of sound, this supersonic plane was created during a phase in America's history where economics took a back seat to national prid and achievement. Every phase of its creation was drenched in controversy reminiscent of an ancient Greek tragedy. In the end, its time in service was much shorter than its creators and the dreamers amongst us would have ever imagined.

CONCORDE ALPHA-DELTA: AN INTREPID JOURNEY chronicles the Concorde's final journey to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum on Manhattan's West Side. "The Intrepid," a World War II Aircraft Carrier, is the centerpiece of a museum dedicated to exploring sea, air, and space history, and is the final resting place for Concorde Alpha-Delta--one of only 14 supersonic passenger jets in existence. This documentary highlights the humanity behind the hardware and explores the emotional connection between the Concorde and the people who kept her flying.
