Virtual Tuesday Talk: The Concorde: Technology Meets Glamour

August 24, 2021 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

$20

The ultimate frequent flyer, raconteur and author Rene Silvin will relay his experiences with “The Concorde: Technology Meets Glamour.” Silvin flew on this technologically advanced plane 160 times, making him the perfect person to present the history of this marvel of technology from an in-depth, personal point of view. As one of Air France’s best customers, he was treated to a very early non-stop flight originating and ending in Paris. It was akin to a 3½ – hour test flight over the Atlantic. He will also introduce us to the famous folk with whom he rubbed elbows in flight.
