Day 28 – March 28th 2013
In celebrating our little 10th Anniversary (online), I realised today that I haven’t actually asked any questions related to the 10 years themselves. Back in 2003 all sorts of interesting things happened, but the one that caught my eye, and was very close to my heart, was the last flight of Concorde. Since I live under the flight path in West London, planes are a part of daily life. You get used to them (or you move somewhere else) but you could never get used to Concorde. The distant rumble signalled its arrival, and the roar meant watching TV was pointless for 30 seconds. I also worked at the airport in a former life and watching it take off whilst standing at the end of the runway had to be experienced to be understood. So yes, I was one of the sad people when it finally stopped flying. At the end back in 2003, BA had seven Concorde planes, which have now been sent to different locations around the world. So, today’s question is….
Q: Name any three of the locations of where the last seven British Airways Concorde planes have ended up? (cities are fine – exact locations a bonus)
A: London (Heathrow), Bristol (Filton Aerodrome), Manchester (Airport), Edinburgh (Museum of Flight), New York (Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum), Seattle (Museum of Flight) and Barbados (Grantley Adams Airport) – see more here
