I'm sure some of you would be interested to know that Concorde plus Tony Blair just left LHR about two minutes ago on the way to IAD.

That's how I recognised it!

I was so bored I started watching countdown-then Concorde disturbed my tranquility!!!

Blair Force One - I think that'll be the first A380 off the production line that Euro President Blair will award himself.
