I'd always considered Concorde to be something truly special. A passenger aircraft conceived in the 1950s, designed & built in the 1960s and which still flew higher and faster than any other airliner in her final year of operation in 2003. But mostly it was the sheer, timeless beauty of her. An aircraft which first took to the skies in 1969 and yet which still looks futuristic even after she's been retired. It doesn't matter what angle you view her from, she still looks beautiful - visit the photos page if you need to be convinced. I was fortunate enough to fly on her six months before her retirement - the realisation of a childhood dream, and every bit as good as I'd imagined. Sadly, nobody will ever again have the same opportunity.

ConcordeSST is the definitive information site.

The world's last Concorde flight was at 11:30am on 26th November when G-BOAF - the last Concorde built - flew from Heathrow to Filton, where she was made.
