Positively the last Concorde flight ever in less than twelve hours time.
Here are the Avon police plans for Wed 26 November, when the last Concorde flight ever departs London Heathrow, goes Mach 2 just for the hell of it over the Bay of Biscay, and touches down at Filton, Bristol, where much of the original development took place.
I'll try to get to the Clifton Bridge, to celebrate Brunel at the same time.

The thought of Concorde
saddens me ( possibly because 101
sits less than half a mile from my doorstep). It [with it'
s clone Concordeski
] was the only supersonic passenger jet to even make it to prototype status. Considering things like it's massive fuel consumption
, should we ditch the beast, find something else or go back to subsonics?

For people with a sick sense of homour: The makers of Conarde 2000
present a new game called Elevator Action
. The rules are simple. Just try to stop the free fall of an elevator in a burning TV tower. What's next? A submarine game?
