Outside of Concorde

Concorde 216 - or Alpha Foxtrot - was the last of the fleet to be built, and the last to fly. It is now a visitor attraction adjacent to the runway at Filton.

Underneath the wing you can see the full curve of the amazing supersonic jet which was jointly made by the British and the French.

Seats inside Concorde

Inside Concorde, the luxury is immediately apparent with comfy leather seats and more legroom than most modern planes.
