Farewell Concorde
From ITN: "Concorde has touched down for the very last time after a special flight from Heathrow Airport to the site where the supersonic plane was made.

Thousands of aviation fans and aerospace workers braved the showers at Airbus UK's Filton airfield in Bristol to see Concorde 216 fly overhead at 2000ft and then land.

The aircraft will eventually go on display at the site."

There'll be one on display on this side of the Atlantic too. From ABC News: "NEW YORK Nov. 26 — Six years after setting a speed record for a commercial jet crossing the Atlantic, a British Airways Concorde took a slow boat up New York harbor to its new home at a waterside museum.
Lashed to the deck of a gray barge, the slender white jetliner on Tuesday rode under the Verrazano Bridge and past the Statue of Liberty, made a brief pirouette for the television cameras off lower Manhattan and moved majestically up the Hudson to the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum."
