Ye gods it was a beautiful plane

Stumbleupon led me to this video of the history of Concorde. The opening sequence of its maiden flight is worth watching just of its shear beauty. I was in BBC Television Centre when the last Concordes flew over London. The people in the building were hardened to celebrities and it took a lot to get them interested but there were more people lining the balconies and the horseshoe car park than I had seen since George Michael did Top Of The Pops in the eighties.
