Concorde First Officer's Instruments 

Left you can see the First Officers instruments on



Some of the First Officer's instruments were duplicated on the Pilots side, the nose control switch and indications, landing gear indication and Icovol are classed as part of this section and were not duplicated on the Pilots side but were accessible for the pilot.


Some other subtle differences can be seen and where possible these will be indicated.

* Note; Changes to layout During Service for TCAS

The installation of the TCAS system brought about some changes in the layout of the instruments in Concorde, Originally both the pilot and first officer had Temperature indicators on their display panels. The TCAS system took up valuable space on each side of the cockpit so to resolve the issue TCAS was installed where the clock was, the clock was moved down to the next position and replaced the Temperature indicator and the temperature indicator was moved to the center console.

Before TCAS installation

After TCAS installation

Temperature indicator added to center console
