I am not a fanatical fan of the Concorde but I did love to see and hear it fly in and out of JFK. The fact that it made a visit to a small airport in IL is great, not to mention how people came out to see it. I love this pic and the fact that great birds like the SST can make people come out too see it. The pic isn't the best quality but it drives home the point of why many of us love aviation. Look at that beauty! Imagine if the SST made a charter stop to ISP? or FRG? I am not sure if the runways there could handle it but I tell you this if it ever happened when the Concorde was around I bet we would have a few thousand people come out! Imagine that sound during takeoff?
