Arrow BA Concorde to Shannon?

Has anyone heard anything about this rumour?

According to reports on local radio there she is expected within the next few days for crew training circuits.

If this is the case BA are really moving forward with getting her back in service.

I bet you there are a few of Concorde drivers around that are getting a little excited about getting off the golf course and back to work...then again I can't fault a nice afternoon on the golf course!!!

BA Concorde was flight-planned out of Heathrow supersonic onto the ocean, then returning to Shannon for Friday morning. Plan was subsequently cancelled, reasons unknown. So, it seems that it will be flying into Shannon sometime soon, presumably for crew training/refresher.
