Former Concorde co-pilot, Captain Les Evans, is scheduled to visit Great Alne Park, retirement community in Warwickshire, to lead a charity talk in support of DineWithUs on Wednesday 15th May.

During the event, Captain Les Evans, will discuss the future of high-speed air travel and the potential continuation of the iconic Concorde's legacy. Concorde, renowned for introducing ordinary passengers to the thrill of supersonic flight, set records and boasted cutting-edge aircraft technology during its time in service. With four years of experience as a co-pilot on Concorde, Les Evans offers a unique insight into its operation and eventual retirement in 2003.

Adam Hall, manager at Great Alne, expressed his excitement about welcoming Captain Les Evans to the village, saying: “We are extremely excited to welcome Captain Les Evans to the village. The talk promises to be an interesting and engaging event for both residents and the public alike, especially with Concorde being in the news lately. At Great Alne Park, we have a thriving community and are pleased to host a range of interesting guests and speakers.”
