Beautiful images of a plane I never got to see in person.V
Wonderful images of a fantastic plane, and a very nostalgic event. Saw it fly several times at the International Tattoo at Fairford, and still find it hard to believe it is no more.
It still looks futuristic today, shame they are no longer flying. Used to see them when I worked at Heathrow in the 70s and later hear them in south Devon when they went supersonic over the Bristol Channel. Good reminders of a very special plane. V.

I saw one on the ramp in Miami, got a snapshot on film. Nice gallery! V
Every Concord that landed at Heathrow passed over my house at about 2,000ft.
No disputing that it is a magnificent plane.
But was I glad when they stopped flying, the noise is almost painful.
Heard it coming, heard nothing else when above, heard it going.
If I tried to describe how noisy it really was I would have to use some swear words.
We used to have the Concorde fly over our home here in York and I never tired of watching it. We went to Dulles or BWI to see it take off and it had to abort the flight after going part way down the runway. It was very dramatic as it had gotten up a good head of steam when it suddenly shut the engines down. Nice to see these photos.
Cool gallery capturing the end of this era of commercial supersonic flight.
Mmm, you know how to capture true beauty in every way possible! Vote
Still such an amazing looking plane, such a shame it's no longer in service.
