About this event

The In Line runway design was created by Jock Lowe, BA's longest serving Concorde Pilot. It is highly innovative but has never been implemented before. The presentation will explain how it works, the benefits compared with a parallel runway option, why it is so much cheaper than the alternative and is it safe?

The speaker will also touch on other airports around the world that could benefit from this design and those airports in the UK that with hindsight missed a great opportunity.
