It is. Just do a photo search on D-ABYM, and you'll see!

My understanding is that it is real. I believe this is a museum in Germany someplace.

I think it was taken at the Technik Museum Sinsheim. They have a Concorde and a Tu-144 as well.

After looking through a bunch of pictures of her, D-YM really needs a wash. This is not Air France after all.

If your talking about the Concorde ad in Times Square that was a scaled down model, not the real aircraft. The one at the Intrepid is flat on a barge.

Almost. Concorde and Concordski are in Sinsheim, D-ABYM is in nearby Speyer. However, the company running both museums is the same AFAIK.

According to this web site it is one hour from FRA. Sounds like a nice layover activity!

I just feel the need to point out that the last interstate bridge you drove across (or under) weighs more than that 747.
