It must be a Concorde Day

With the Vulcan from Bruntingthorpe almost there, with its flight certificate, more and more attention is turning to The Concorde and trying to obtain her for flying display only, and not as a passenger plane or as a supersonic plane.

As the debate gets closer, and hopefully some demands will be made, lets reflect back on one of the best designs and ideas formed between the English and French.

Ironically, the Concorde was funded by British and French taxpayers. but sold for £1 per plane to Air France and British Airways.  British Airways, made the decision to ground her (albeit it through a subsidiary part manufacturer).   Many people are still of the opinion that someone like Sir Richard Branson should be allowed to save this plane for flying exhibitions, like he has assisted the saving of other great british icons.

Anyhow, lets look back on this beauty of the skies, thanks to more Youtube users.  And yes, its that song again, but it so suits the clips.  Watch for the noise of the engines part way through when the plane first went into service.
