Adieu a Concorde

So the first Concorde to take flight takes the last boat home. What a way to go. No tail and just the barest stubs for wings. That famous nose was intact though - despite some being auctioned tomorrow for as much as £300,000 a piece! It did Bahrain in 1976 and goes to Edinburgh next stop. I'm up there in a couple of weeks so maybe I'll look for it. This picture was taken from Southwark Bridge - which for a few minutes was a scene of chaos as tourists and locals rushed back and forth across the bridge, paying little attention to cars, buses and taxis - earlier this evening.
