This shot of a super high performance takeoff was taken during the grand opening dedication ceremony for DFW Airport about 4 months before the airport actually opened.

Nice shot! Whats that black thing under the wing? Hardly the main landing gears. Could it be a bird? The strange thing is that the nose gear is visible but the rear isnt and i dont think it has to do with the angle of the shot.

Tee 'stuff' under the concorde is the engine nozzles of the left wing. The wing is so white in this shot it blends into the sky.

The "things" falling of the Concorde are the leading edge of the leftwing and the lefthand engines. The wing nearly the same colour as the sky, see?

What a great plane!!
