Concorde at Prestwick
Concorde stops off at Prestwick airport as the crowds brave the rain to catch a glimpse of the famous aeroplane. The film shows Concorde coming into land as the crowds look on from the observation deck. A Boeing in BA livery also follows Concorde into land. The film then features shots of Concorde G-BSST on the runway with some activity beneath it as the crew depart the plane. The film ends with people looking on from observation deck in the rain and a small child being held up to pay binoculars mounted on the deck.
