This is an angle you don't see every day, or ever, really. Looking at this masterpiece, can you even imagine someone saying "Hey, I have an idea! Let's stop flying the fastest and most beautiful airliner in the history of aviation!" And others responding, "Oui, let us stop flying these truly fantastic, iconic and epic flying machines." And they actually do it!? Of course, business must come first. But this pictures says there had to have been an exception. There simply had to have been.

Even if I'm not a Concorde fan, this is a very good shot with an unusual visual angle. Since I have to rate the picture, not the aircraft, I rate this as 5 stars. Great picture!
