    "ALL THE PILOTS THAT ARE ENGAGED ON THIS PROGRAMME - AND INDEED THE 4 AIRLINE PILOTS WHO CAME AND FLEW THE AEROPLANE A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AGO HAVE FOUND IT EXTREMELY PLEASANT TO FLY.

    "IT'S A VERY PRECISE AEROPLANE - IT DOES NOT SORT OF DANCE ABOUT - IT STAYS WHERE YOU PUT IT AND WE DO ALL THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY SUCCESSFUL AEROPLANE FROM THE FLYING POINT OF VIEW.

    (REPORTER): "IF PERFORMS WELL IN THE SKY BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ECONOMICS. WHEN ARE WE GOING TO KNOW IF THE AIRLINES ARE GOING TO MAKE MONEY FROM IT AND WHETHER THEY'LL BUY IT THEREFORE.

    (MAN): WE MAINTAIN THAT AN AIRLINE WHO OPERATES A MIXED FLEET OF CONCORDES AND SUB-SONIC JETS ON THEIR CAPITAL EMPLOYED WILL SHOW A BIGGER RETURN IF THEY HAVE THE MIXED FLEET AS OPPOSED TO STAYING COMPLETELY SUB-SONIC.

    (REPORTER OFF CAMERA): WELL DOESN'T IT GIVE YOU SOME SATISFACTION THAT SO FAR AT ANY RATE, THE KNOCKERS ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE AIRCRAFT - THE KNOCKERS HAVE BEEN PROVED WRONG?
    (MAN): "IT DOES INDEED. IT SHOWS WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH DETERMINATION - AND THERE'S HAD TO BE A LOT OF DETERMINATION ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CHANNEL - AND I'M HAPPY TO BE PART OF IT AND SEE THE RESULTS ARE COMING OUT THE WAY THEY ARE.
