Hallo everyone today was the start of the end of the greatest icons in the world of aviation  the Queen of the Skies Concorde. The announcement came this day 10 years ago to retire the Concorde fleet. It was  the intention and  commitment from BA to keep one flying for heritage flights and airshows. The promise was never kept and, that beautiful experience and site in the skies has  gone. for 10 years, such was the impact that it had on the world it has not been forgotten. Save The Concorde Group will be making announcements today and ongoing about getting one back into the air where it truly belongs to grace our skies yet

again.
