Inspiring Travel Company client Clive Cox recently got in touch with his experience of Concorde. This year Inspiring Travel Company is celebrating its 40 years with memories of the iconic aircraft – which we were among the first tour operators to charter the services of for our clients.

I was lucky enough to win a competition run by a petrol company in the Queen's 25th, Jubilee year to take a flight on Concorde.
We flew out of London on the 25th of June 1977 to Washington and Miami and I can honestly say I have never been treated so royally; even having Jubilee cocktails throughout the flights! It was a wonderful experience and I still have the menu from the onboard dining service!
We were called the ‘Esso Concordians’ and were made so welcome wherever we went. Unfortunately we did not fly back by Concorde and were soon brought back down to earth when we were asked to pay for our drinks coming home!
