Guided video tour of Concorde 216

A guided tour of Concorde 216

After retiring to Filton, Bristol in November 2003, Concorde 216 was turned into an exhibit.

Visitors can enter the plane and see the luxury jet's interior first hand.

The jet will stay at its temporary home in Filton until it moves to an undercover aviation heritage centre.

There it will be a centrepiece of displays and exhibits telling the story of the region's aviation heritage.

Concorde's cockpit with its myriad of switches and dials is normally a no-go area but the BBC's TV cameras were allowed in for this special anniversary.

John Maguire filmed this exclusive tour for the BBC Bristol website.
