AF Concorde At LHR Rumor.

Fri May 30, 2003 11:33 pm

Hey,

I just heard there might be a Air France Concorde at LHR tomorrow due to it being its last day, any truth in this matter or is it just a romor?

Thanks.

Even those who work on the aircraft are making an effort to see as many take-offs as possible, today they were going from 09L so it blasts past our hangar.
At 18:50 most of us were outside, many with cameras, as BA001 G-BOAC swooped past, lower than usual as 100 pax on board, like a jet fighter on a low level bombing run.

I keep trying to film it from my house but I keep missing it (dammit!) I might go to LHR today and film it. & Bransons bid probably failed  Sad...(dammit aswell)

Arsenal@LHR - What documentary do you have? I have the ITVV one.

GDB - It was low today huh it was as loud as ever and low! VERY! I will actually miss its fighterjet like sound.

I have the ITVV Concorde Video also, bought it a long time ago for $49.95, good thing I didn't switch it for a Just Planes video..since it's probably gained value and rarity and demand.
-Transaero Boeing 737-200
Good video....great explanation.
What now?
