Scotland’s National Museum of Flight is home to a wonderful collection of aircraft, both military and civilian. The star attraction of the museum is undoubtably Concorde G-BOAA, but there’s plenty of other aircraft to see and enjoy too, and we certainly didn’t get around all four hangars plus all of the outside exhibits in a single day.
Forget all the records she set, and all the celebrities and royalty she carried. None of that matters. Concorde is surely the single most beautiful aircraft ever to grace the skies. We never saw her equal, and since her retirement on 24th October, 2003, the skies have been filled with ugly, lumbering subsonic wide-body jets.
