Cheers guys!

I was watching the various Concordes' on radar the day they retired,and my father in law's been at me to take him to see -AA in East Fortune, so today was the day!

What an awe-inspiring machine from the outside, truely magnificent, the flight deck is bigger than I thought and the FE's panel was, well, mind boggling!

East Fortune have put on a magnificent display, one of the exhibits mentioned that the FE was also able to pilot the 'plane, I was just wondering to what extent they were able!

One last thing, surely there is ONE machine that's being kept in top nick for display's etc.
If a Lancaster and a Connie are still kicking about, surely the Concorde will be able to do a flypast at displays in the future!

Cheers!
