Can someone tell me please when Concorde was last associated with Singapore Airlines, I am sure it was not 24th Nov 2003.

I'm pretty sure at one point it was used by both BA and SQ, but I think that was quite some time ago.
I'd rather be flying.

Yes it is the Concorde that was once painted in SQ livery. However, that was more than 20 years ago, so it should be labeled only British Airways. The reason for this is that when you upload a picture to the database, you will get a selection of info that other people have uploaded, of the same a/c. This photographer for some reason choose BA/SQ instead of only BA.

Hope it makes sense!

Thanks for answering. I see now why it is titled as being BA/SQ. After all the recent Concorde talk I just wondered if there was something that had slipped by.
