Concorde: We can rebuild it!

29.10.2004


University of Surrey staff and students are taking part in the rebuilding of Concorde 202. They will be reassembling some key parts of Concorde’s engine air intakes on campus over the next few months. The work coincides with the imminent arrival of contractors at Brooklands Museum who will be joining the wings and fuselage back together. The parts being refurbished by UniS volunteers will then be attached to the aircraft.



Concorde is a unique and special aircraft, an unrivalled aviation achievement, which was led on the British side by UniS’ first Pro Chancellor Sir George Edwards. To this day Concorde still inspires awe and wonder from those who have witnessed her in action.

In addition, Christopher Orlebar will be giving a lecture at UniS in early November on the story that led this fabulous aircraft to become a national icon.


Christopher Orlebar joined BOAC in 1969 and became a VC10 pilot, navigator and instructor. He became a Concorde pilot and instructor in 1976 and then went on to become a training Captain on the Boeing 737 from 1986 to 2000 when he retired. Christopher’s book “The Concorde Story” is now in its sixth edition.

UniS is continuing to support Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, as they restore Concorde “Delta Golf”. To find out more visit www.surrey.ac.uk/concorde or www.brooklandsconcorde.com

Im Focus: High-tech textiles – more than just clothes

Today, textiles are used for more than just clothes or bags – they are high tech materials for high-tech applications. High-tech textiles must fulfill a number of functions and meet many requirements. That is why the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC dedicated some major developing work to this most intriguing research area. The result can now be seen at Techtextil trade show in Frankfurt from 4 to 7 May. On display will be novel textile-integrated sensors, a unique multifunctional coating system for textiles and fibers, and textile processing of glass, carbon, and ceramics fibers to fiber preforms.

Thin materials and new kinds of sensors now make it possible to integrate silicone elastomer sensors in textiles. They are suitable for applications in medical...
