On this day: Concorde first landing in New York

Weekend Special | October 19, 2019
For some time, New York was out of reach for the Concorde. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey banned the type from landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in 1976. After a lot of resistance from local authorities and communities, Concorde was finally able to set its wheels on the landing strip at JFK on October 19, 1977, starting regular scheduled passenger services to New York a month later.
