Seattle - Musuem of Flight

When Concorde was making the last of her commercial flights in late 2003 one British Airways Concorde captain was quoted as saying that for the first time in aviation history we were about to start going backwards.  Concorde was loud, expensive and accessible to only a narrow margin of  the traveling public, but it was arguably one of the most - if not the most - beautiful and technically sophisticated machines man has ever made.  Seeing this British Airways Concorde permanently parked at the Museum of Flight is quite sad in many ways.  Even though she looks like she's traveling at Mach 1 it's just not right to see her just sitting there against the grey Seattle sky.
