Concorde 214 had a less than glamorous start to its life as G-BFKW. After manufacture and with no buyer, it was loaned via a sale or return agreement to British Airways, to cover for a 6 month period, while G-BOAC was being repaired at Filton.
After an aborted flight to New York on 26th April 1980 the aircraft was grounded with a water contaminated hydraulic system. the contamination had induced an intake ramp failure at Mach 2, which in turn lead to engine surges. The aircraft did not fly again for more than a year, but at a cost of one million pounds was re-entered into service, this time as G-BOAG, in Feb 1981.
