11 years since Concorde

It is 11 years since the last take off of the mighty Concorde, our only supersonic passenger aeroplane. This video shows the plane leaving JFK for the last time on October 24th, 2003. Sadly, the closest I have ever got to Concorde was at the Seattle air museum.



While I am posting old footage, here is a spectacular night takeoff in April of 2003 from London Heathrow. The afterburners are clearly visible.
