Its not at Heathrow, so where is the little Concorde from outside?

Have you ever considered what happened to the little 40% scale model of Concorde that used to sit outside Heathrow.

Now that there is a lot of attention at Heathrow, many people will start thinking, where is the Concorde.

Well, rest assured that it was not scrapped.  In another top management decision, BA decided that it was something from the past, and not symbolic of their companys current development.  (Rather ironic that the new terminal 5 building has  a Concorde Lounge and Bar!!).

The other reason behind this was the cost of the plot of land, although small, was well over a £1,000,000 to hire as advertising space.

However, the Concorde model is safe, she has an excellent home at the Brooklands Museum, along with a  full sized one.  Visit the site here.

If you are interested in the full sized concorde, take a look at what’s been happening to her.
