Where is Concorde?
This panorama was part of a commission for the Prudential, owners of The Mall at Cribbs Causeway. Make sure you view the 360 virtual tour full screen by clicking on the button far right.
Actually this preliminary panorama was taken above the barrel vaulted roof on the Shopping Centre to show the extensive car parking close by. The final version for the Prudential was to be taken from a ‘cherry picker’ to be positioned suitably within the car park area and show a more conventional perspective of that part. When we get around to doing that I will post it here! For those who know The Mall, I am actually above the WHSmith unit in the centre.
This 360 degree virtual tour is a three dimensional representation of the panorama and is extremely high resolution. The final panorama here is 180 million pixels. At the time I didn’t realise one could see several key features in the distance including Concorde next to the runway at Filton and both Severn Crossings including South Wales in the distance.
Showing my age now, but I remember my Dad taking me to Filton when I was very young to see the first flight of Concorde which I think was in 1967. My Dad sadly passed away last month. Concorde’s resting place is included on this panorama.
Make sure you view fullscreen and zoom in to see Concorde especially! If you have one take a look on the iPad! This vr tour, unlike so many others, is iPhone and iPad compliant and full screen on the iPad is awesome!
