Where to See Concorde

Ever wondered where to see Concorde aircraft today? The iconic Concorde supersonic airliner was retired from our skies in 2003 after around 30 years of service.

A terrible crash near Paris in July 2000 had grounded the airliner before modifications were made to its fuel tanks. However, by the time it re-entered service the costs were mounting and a final blow was struck when Airbus decided it would no longer support the aircraft with parts.

There were 20 Concordes produced, including six that were purely test aircraft which never flew with airlines.

Only Air France and British Airways operated Concordes, however a joint agreement in 1977 saw one aircraft operate jointly in Singapore Airlines/British Airways colours.

Since its retirement, the remaining Concorde aircraft were distributed to museums around the world.
