Faster and Faster (film #10 in the 100 Years in the Air section of WPA Film Library). [Category: Industrial]

Clip from a British documentary about the first test flight of the Concorde, the first supersonic commercial airliner. This is fairly gripping, especially the sound of the plane, which is otherworldly on film, though I hate to think what it must sound like to people living close to airports where this thing lands. The whole film would have been better, but this has historical value even as a clip.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
