Notes F-BTSC(203), being a model 100, is the heaviest Concorde of all the Air France fleet: it is one ton heavier and two years older than the lighter and youngest F-BTSD (213). It had just completed a 12 month maintanence down period (D Check), after 12,000 hrs of flight (4000 cycles).
The check involved visual, radiographical and ultrasonical checks. The work total 60,000 hours of checking, piece by piece. After which three weeks of ground tests took place before two flight tests were performed. The aircraft then returned to Service in mid June 2000

In 1978-79 this Aircraft was the one used in the film "Airport'79 : The Concorde". There are some grabs from the film at the bottom of the page.

On 2nd May 1989 this Concorde carried the current Pope John Paul II.
