So farewell then…

…Concorde. The last Concorde flew for the last time yesterday, touching down at Filton in Bristol where bits of it were built. Apparently the centre of Bristol and the area around the airfield were heaving, but the handy hills to the south weren’t so I was able to pop out at lunchtime and grab some snaps.

I’m not one of these people who thinks it should have been kept flying for ever, but it was a pretty impressive sight and certainly qualifies for “end of an era” status. I doubt we’ll see anything like it for a long time to come, if ever…
