Where you will find the Concorde

702Mus of Flight As mentioned yesterday, it is 11 years since Concorde last flew. Sadly, the closest I have ever got to Concorde was at the Seattle air museum, Heathrow airport and CDG airport in Paris. I have the germ of an idea of going to visit all of the remaining Concordes around the world. As most are in the UK and France, that should not be too hard! Adding Barbados in, is a little trickier.

Braniff: Flying in the future

  1. Thanks for the memories. How I miss flying the Concorde. Aside from these museum tours, what remains is flying BA First from JFK only to access the “still in use “Concorde Lounge which certainly doesn’t have the clientele when the Concorde flew.

    Just hoping Branson will somehow one day fiscally manage to bring supersonic travel back to the future. Until then, it is still amusing to read the bloggers who droll over lie flat seats rather than fantasize about the lost pleasantries of flying Mach 2.
