The best freeware out there is PM2.

I (and many other people) found a problem with the panel; some of the guages crash FS, so I use a 747 panel instead. The downside is that the afterburner and other effects depend on the panel, so I am waiting for them to bring out the "panel pro".

With the link you'll have to click the PJ part at the top then Concorde.

Oh, I did not think you knew about that since you did not refer to it as PM2.

The other one I know of is the SSTSIM : http://www.sstsim.com/

I haven't tried it as I use the PSS but it's probably pretty good.

The only offerings im aware of are from PSS, PM2 and SSTSIM and by far the best one has to be the SSTSIM Concorde. Thought I must say it's an extremely complicated aircraft and I only recommend it if your an absolute die hard fan of the Concorde.

SSTSIM is the one to get if your mad about concorde, I was so surprised how far off the mark PSS is compared to this. PSS is good if you just want to take the "kick the tyres and lite the fires" approach. SSTSIM is more systems and procedures orientated, I have got pages and pages of tables and checklists here which all get used when taking the pointy aeroplane into its natural environment ;)
With SSTSIM you get to be the PIC, First Officer and Flight Engineer all at once, you can however use the virtual flight engineer and he will take care of shifting all the fuel around to maintain CoG. The workload can get overwhelming at times and it can be easy to loose track of things. Like most other quality payware aeroplanes, the learning curve is steep.

SSTSIM Always.... It took me like 2 weeks of professional help (Jeff Hansen) and about 5 tries for LHR-JFK. Extremely complicated aircraft but awesome when you know how to fly it !!!

P.S Just finished my first successful Concorde Flight LHR -JFK

Thanks guys. I like the look of the SSTSIM model however I'm afraid it may be far to complex for me to fly. :?

Hey dont give up hope now!!! I'm sorry if i made the aircraft sound too difficult to fly but it actually is not. In time you'll come to enjoy it. In every payware there is a learning curve.

So dont give up hope now !!!

The choice is yours.

The thing I care most about is the visual model. That's all I'm really looking for. PM2's is crap...

Are there any better BA textures for the PM2?

Well if your willing to spend some money Casey your best bet would be to get the SSTSIM Concorde, it's the best one out there IMHO. I must say she is quite fun to fly especially when it comes to landing I can't tell you how many times I stroke the tail cone on landing :lol:
