A 40 percent scale model of the iconic Concorde supersonic airliner that has been a landmark of the roundabout on the main approach to London Heathrow Airport for nearly two decades has been donated by British Airways to Brooklands Museum.
The Concorde model itself is a dramatic interpretation of the World`s most beautiful aircraft with a 10 meter wingspan and 25m length

    I had a love affair with this aeroplane, living on the Isle Of Wight we didn’t get to see this very often, only when visiting the mainland and people thought we were a mad family when we leapt up and down with excitement if it passed over- we could never understand why they didn’t do the same LOL!!! I cried when they took it out – the skies have never been the same since- !! Load of drivel- but how I feel-!!!

  • I agree Pauline!! Living where I am, we are 10 miles from Heathrow, and 3 times a day the house shook as Concorde flew overhead, a great sight, a superb plane ! I was lucky to see the last 3 land at Heathrow, a great sight one after the other !! The musuem at brooklands has a full size one on display now!! So I`m only a half mile away from this great plane, which I see everyday thhrough the trees !!

    Very well done Colin. I was waiting, outside the airport boundary with camera in hand on the one occasion that Concorde came to Perth back in the mid 1980’s. I got what I thought at the time were great photos but they don’t scan or reproduce on here too good unfortunately. Peter

  • Thanks Peter, It brings back memories of driving around the perimiter road at Heathrow, when one took off Wow! Holy S***, the car shook !

    Such an inspirational plane. My father-in-law flew from Heathrow to Manchester in it once – hardly worth the effort but it was an experience. He didn’t book it, all the passengers on his flight were transferred to the Concorde as a special ‘treat’. Love this shot. Brings back memories of driving pass it at Heathrow airport – a magnificent sight !

  • The best memory of this plane was at the Fairford Airshow when it took off in the Rain, I had a great view from the grandstand, but alas , no camera !!

    Have to add this which will make you think I am a pretty dumb my boys creased up in embarassement-we went to Heathrow to just look at planes-for the boys, and I spotted – which I didn’t know at the time was Concorde and remarked on what a gorgeous little aircraft-some one must have plenty of money to have a private jet like that it was so tiny compared to the Aircraft around it! Have never been let to forget that comment!!!

  • Thanks Pauline

    Hi Colin, Very nice work for this well balanced image. I would have greatly liked the opportunity for a seat in one of these fast passenger jets….. but I guess I’ll just have to settle with my RAAF flying-photo experience. Cheers, Steve

  • Thanks Steve !!
