Rumours are rife that airline entrepeneur Richard Branson AKA Mr Virgin for those of you who don't know, is planning to buy Concorde when BA have finished with them.
Can any aircraft freaks tell me if this is true?

I guess if BA finishes operating Concordes one day they would trash all of them immediately to avoid the risk that Branson could get them...
Leasing from AF doesn't seem logical. For scheduled operations one aircraft isn't enough due to the many technical problems which may occure. And AF can't give away more if they want to keep up their regular services.
