We also went to the Aéroscopia museum Toulouse, in south west France to film the Concorde supersonic passenger aircraft, inside and out. No other plane is as beautiful, or presents such perfect aerodynamics. Flying aboard the Concorde was truly a special event. Understanding and explaining what happened during those fatal few minutes involves knowing the details of weights, measures, wind speeds and directions and psychological factors that all came to a head in an extremely short space of time. What did go wrong? Was it a strip of metal left by a Continental Airlines MD11 on the runway that burst the Concorde's tire that hit the fuel tank and ruptured it? Or was there pilot error and a sequence of apparently insignificant mistakes that led to the tragedy?
