The start of a personal quest for me, this year I aim to visit each one of the eighteen preserved Concorde aircraft, to be fair I have visited many of them already – but this time I have a plan and a time limit to achieve my goal. Eighteen aircraft distributed across five countries seems to be feasible, especially at most remain in the UK and France.
So to start, visited on 5th May 2016 the sixth production airframe Concorde G-BOAA housed in the quite impressive dedicated facility at the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune, Scotland. Well worth a visit – this is fitting display of the aircraft with many other Concorde artifacts and an interactive displays.
G-BOAA last few in August 2000 and did not receive the final refit following the Paris crash, and was transported from London to Scotland by barge in 2004.
