Concorde At FLL

Mon Oct 11, 1999 5:38 am

Just wondering what happenned with the Concorde at FLL. Some relatives told me it was several hours late, and most of the "Aviation Enthusiasts" were quite angry as reported by local news.

It finally arrived shortly after 8:00 P.M. I saw it when I arrived at 9:00 sitting at gate D9. I spoke to one of the security officers who said that they were told about 5 different arrival times, so no one knew apparantly. I wish I could have seen it leave, it left before me but the weather was so poor you wouldn't have been able to see it for long anyway. Too bad considering it will probably be a long time before it returns to FLL.

Hope that's helpful, sorry I couldn't have responded sooner after you asked.

Here are two south Florida newspapers with stories about it.
