There went the second one - VERY long float - the weather at LHR looks awful, plenty of clouds. Not to mention that it looks like there's a stiff crosswind.

BA002 only one left now!

Are they displaying the Union Jack from the cockpit? It looks like they are, but it's impossible to tell on the webcast.

Just watched this at work in central London. All the offices around had crowds of people on the roofs. The sight of three Concordes flying over London in succession was a simply awesome sight. Rushed down to the TV room to see the landings live. Everyone watched in awe, then just turned away silently and went back to work.

Sad day for European aviation.  Crying

A very beautiful show indeed!

I just now videotaped the live coverage here in the U.S. of the three consecutive Concorde landings at LHR . . . all I can say is WOW! The Brits really now how to put on a show.

Farewell beautiful Speedbird. We shall miss you dearly.

2003, the 100th year after the first aircraft flew on sky, also the year that the only supersonic aircraft finished her duty.

What a sad day.

I saw part of the Sky News & BBC2 coverage after landing, both seemed to be good!

I missed most of the landing, so I'm pretty annoyed about that.. but it'll be on again later Big thumbs up

A very sad day. I taped clips on every news channel and watched them back again and again. A tear comes to my eye everytime I hear the ATCO speak to BA002 on BBC2.  Crying.

I'll miss her.

It was very emotional watching those 3 Concorde's landing at London Heathrow.

A highly respected aircraft will be missed and there's no doubt it has made it's name in aviation history.

My favourite part was when the third Concorde G-BOAG was sitting for a long time and the camera occasionally panned across to witness clearly the Singapore Airlines Boeing 747-412 and the gold SIA Bird standing proudly in the background. Another good moment was when a Concorde was taxiing the other side of the MEGATOP with the Singapore Airlines titles showing crystal clear! Fantastic!

Here is saids that people in QUeens and Brooklyn did not like the sonic booms.

Problem is the plane never went supersonic over land so what are they talking about?

The engines are loud but come on.
