November 26th 2003 - a very sad day for aviation

Postby Sickbag_andy » Mon Nov 26, 2012 12:18 pm

It was 9 years ago today that Concorde made it's final flight, G-BOAF flew from Heathrow to Filton - back to where she was built. The flight included a final mach 2 sprint around the Bay of Biscay.

here's a you tube video I've found of the final landing
