IT'S OVER.....as chief Concorde pilot Mike Bannister said "from today, the world is a bigger place", the last flying icon of British and French design touches down at Filton ending 34 years of Concorde operations. As Concorde is powered by four Rolls-Royce/SNECMA Olympus 593 engines, it's fitting that the Rolls-Royce Defence Aerospace factory clearly stands out in the background.

What's unforgettable day and a amazing touch down.
The background is crowd with Concorde's lover like me but I didn't have the chance to stand on there. And the Rolls-Royce building is also a perfect match of this picture. Well done Martin.

If you take a closer look to it's nose and imagine it is a human face, you'll notice the Concorde is kind of sad by itself. Excellent picture, by the way.
