How Much Longer Until The Concorde Flies Again?

Fri Jun 08, 2001 5:07 am

It seems like it has been forever since the crash of the Air France Concorde and I have not seen much about how long it will be until the Concordes are flying passengers again. I heard that British Airways and Air France wanted to put them back in service at the same time, but I still do not know when they will be in service again. When will it be?

Regards,

Reports in the UK media today suggest that it could fly again in september at the earliest, when the modifications to the tyres and fuel tanks are completed. Here's a source...
