Biography

British aircraft, one of the most elegant and expensive planes in use in the '90s. The first commercial flight of the Concorde took off from the Charles de Gaul airpost in Paris with a destination of Rio de Janeiro.

The Concorde was retired from commercial aviation in 2003. The last Concorde from New York touched down at 16:05:45 BST at Heathrow airport according to BBC news. Two other flights arrived just before and the three planes were still taxiing around the airport when the celebratory programme ended at 16:45 that day.

The BBC News reported on Friday, October 24, 2004, "The New York flight left at 1235 BST, another left Edinburgh at 1420 BST and a third began a loop of the Bay of Biscay a few minutes later.

Earlier, the first of the planes departed from Heathrow at 1035 BST for a flight to Edinburgh, where it landed at noon before leaving again for its final journey. "
