Buy A Piece Of AF Concorde From €20

Thu Sep 11, 2003 6:41 am

Chance to buy a bit of Concorde

Concorde fans with as little as 20 euros to spend may be able to snap up a piece of history in Paris next month.
Air France is auctioning Concorde parts and memorabilia to mark the end of the supersonic airliner's 27 years of service.

Big spenders - with large spaces available - may fancy the giant engines which powered the fleet to its supersonic speeds.

Estimated prices for the Olympus 593 engines, built by Rolls Royce and Snecma, are not being made public.

Concorde's distinctive nose cone is expected to be another highlight, Christie's spokeswoman Capucine Milliot told BBC News Online.

The 3.5-metre cone has a guide price of 10,000-15,000 euros.

That's a really stupid way to get rid of it. Why not in a museum, or have it stored at an airfield somewhere where you could see it???????
