Seconds before flight BA1215 (LHR-BOS) aborted take-off on 27R. The reason is obvious from the photo. Aircraft returned to stand, and the flight departed nearly three hours later with G-BOAD.

The snap being taken through the heat waves makes this an interesting shot.

I was fortunate enough to be travelling on this flight, we all returned to concorde lounge while backup aircraft was readied. 1 or 2 bottles of champers later we boarded g-boad and took off into the night sky. we then had the unusual spectacle of watching the sun rise in the west and arrived in boston in daylight. i believe we also broke the east to west transatlantic record on the way. it seemed the whole of boston had turned out to say goodbye, including the airport fire brigade who provided a water arch for us to taxi through. once through us customs and immigration and after a lot of running about we boarded a virgin a340 for the long and slow journey back to london. great memories!
