windmills Concorde's last flight, at Bristol

On 26th November 2003, Concorde made its last ever flight, when the final production model was flown home to its birthplace of Filton. On its flypast of Bristol, it overflew the Clifton suspension bridge, giving a spectacular photo opportunity. The resultant photo shows Concorde, the bridge, and crowds of people gathered to watch around the observatory on Clifton Down - the former windmill which was used for producing snuff.

Update: Although the quality is poor, you can see a video of Concorde flying over the bridge - it's about 3 and a half minutes into the broadcast. Mills: [Clifton] Tags: [aircraft] [bbc]
