Notes

In 1986 F-BVFF was the first Air France Concode to travel around the world on an Chater flight. it would complete 12 further trips in its operation life.

A month before the accident the aircraft was withdrawn from service to provide parts for F-BTSD, that was completing its D check. Once Sierra-Delta was back in service, work would start on Fox-Fox's D check.

Work started on the check in April 2002, after the safety modifications were complete on F-BVFA. The aircraft was 60% of the way through its check when it was announced that Concorde services would stop. Work was stopped and the aircraft cosmetically re-assembled
