Concorde – The Last Flight Home

“Concorde – The Last Flight Home”

by Stephen Brown


Artist
Stephen Brown is a self-taught artist who has specialised almost exclusively in aviation subjects for the last 15 years. Building on a background as a landscape and aviation photographer, his style carefully combines both these areas of interest. Stephen’s originals in oil are in much demand and have been regularly exhibited with the prestigious Guild of Aviation Artists. Demand for his originals is high with regular commissions being undertaken for commercial and private clients as well as the RAF.

Captain Les Brodie (Pilot) joined British Airways as a Trident co-pilot in 1973. He went on to fly 737s out of London Gatwick before joining the Concorde fleet in 1988 as co-pilot. Les became Simulator Instructor for Concorde in 1993 before gaining command on 777s in 1997. Les returned to Concorde as Flight Manager in June 1998 and remained in that position until the retirement of Concorde. Les carried out the last Concorde landing in G-BOAF at Filton on November 26, 2003.

Warren Hazelby (Flight Engineer) was born in Filton, near Bristol, England, on 17th February 1951. After his formal education, he joined British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in August 1967 as a ground engineer. In 1976 he was selected for Flight Engineer Training.

Since then, he has flown thousands of hours on Boeing 707 & 720 aircraft, Lockheed Tristar L1011, and the Boeing 747 (Jumbo). He was selected for Concorde and started the six-month training course in 2000. During his time on Concorde he flew the scheduled flights to New York and Barbados as well as the final flights to Barbados, New York and Filton where the aircraft will be exhibited in museums.

During his time with British Airways, Warren has also fulfilled a variety of management roles. In 1993 he became British Airways Chief Flight Engineer responsible for over 600 Flight Engineers. Since being trained onto Concorde, he has become Flight Manager Concorde and ran the Fleet on a daily basis with Captain Les Brodie.

Warren is married to Lorraine, and they have two teenage children, Hayley at Sussex University and Luke at RGS Guildford. Apart from aviation and his family, Warren’s interests include golf, skiing, gardening, and playing squash.
