BA Concorde to Dubai?

by Matt Falcus

It seems talks are underway to sell Heathrow’s British Airways Concorde G-BOAB to Dubai. It would become a tourist attraction on one of the palm-shaped islands, similar to the fate of the QE2 cruise liner.

This link http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/transport/article6054915.ece explains the story in more detail.

If this goes ahead, the planned display of G-BOAB in Heathrow’s Terminal 5 would not come to fruition, and there would be no lasting memory of Concorde at Heathrow.

The Concorde aircraft this week celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Really a pitty because it belongs to British Airways and to the British
people forever.

Too many Concorde have already been sent to other countries.$

Sorry for that, but I love HER !

On the other hand, that would be a magnificent touristic attraction
for Dubai and, again, to their profit….

It is sad to see jewels go, forever !!!
