Good pictures Moose. Thank you for posting.
For Concorde, a Far Slower Ride At a Much Lower Altitude
As aviation passages go, the chilly late-morning ceremony was one filled with patriotism and a fair bit of supersonic lust by gray-haired male speakers. ''It certainly is the sexiest machine I've ever seen,'' said Tom Tyrrell, the museum's chief executive. She was ''a gorgeous bird,'' said James G. Kennedy, a construction magnate, who was not alone in assigning the supersonic jet gender.

I was there that day. I caught a couple of rides to the Statue of Liberty to see the barge navigating.
The whole thing looked odd. Nothing I was used to seeing.
I still have the original New York Times from the day and from the day after.
No Space Shuttle will ever equal Concorde's beauty.
