I took my Mum up to the Runway Viewing Park on Wednesday to see the Airbus A380 (she hadn't seen it before) and we popped in to the new restaurant at the side of the Concorde hangar. Whilst we were in there, we began reminicing about seeing Concorde at MAN during her years in service, and she asked if I remembered the day that two Concorde's were in together, one from BA and one from AF. I can vaguely remember this - I think they were both parked on Pier Alpha. These were in the days when the spectators terraces were open, atop Terminal One!
I'm just wondering if anyone remembers this, and if so, if they have any pictures or the likes to do with this? And do you remember the date it happened? I only remember it happening the once, but would love to find out more.

Quoting ferengi80 (Thread starter): she asked if I remembered the day that two Concorde's were in together, one from BA and one from AF
There's been a couple of BA Concs diverted in with a couple of hours of each other (one on BA002 and the other BA188) which I think was in the late 1980s (alas I no longer have my refrence material so can't confirm date) but can't remember both AF and BA in at once?
