Right now, Concorde is no longer flying. I would like to know what cities. Concorde flown to city in the past.
Oshkosh,WI (EAA Air show)
London, UK - Heathrow
New York - JFK
Washington, DC Dulles
Paris, FR -Charles de Gaulle
I can't think of it these cities I remembered in the news and books. I am not sure if Concorde been to Gander,NFLD or Halifax,NS for emergency landing.

Concorde has landed a number of times in Halifax due to emergency landings both for Air France and British Airways. The last one I think was in Feb or Mar and it was an Air France Concorde. I am almost positive the Concorde has been to Gander also. Oh and I know it has been to Bangor, Maine as well.

ATL: I know its been a couple times, and I have a picture taken parked by North Cargo at Hartsfield. I think i was in 5th or 4th grade (around 86?), and I remember my parents pulling me out of school early to go watch it land

af and ba concordes have been at gander plenty of times.
just to let you know that before concord went into service
just about all transatlantic testing was conducted there.
i would almost go as far to say with the exception of jfk and iad
if you include all the testing flights and other stops it made there
gander was number 3 on the list for north american airports in concord

A Concorde (not sure if BA or AF) also flew into MSY around 1986. They were selling tickets to the general public for a 2-hour "discovery flight" around the entire Gulf of Mexico. We tried to get tickets but it sold out quickly.

Wasn't Atlantic City at one time considered the diversion airport of choice in the event that bad weather would prevent a landing at JFK? It just seems that a large east coast storm causing problems at JFK would also cause them at ACY.

I went on the Concorde when it was on display at the opening of Mirabel Airport in Montreal. It made a return visit for a state visit that also left her for a while at Mirabel.. so include Montreal in your list.

Every concorde has landed in Bangor, Maine at least once. Most visits were by AF to refuel. We also had a couple of emergency situations in the past. When they came in I did everything to get over to the airport. I saw it a few times and it seemed quite out of place here.
