G-BOAD departs for New York
where she is now displayed at the Intrepid Air and Sea Museum,
New York City.
It was an emotional farewell and at least one young
lady was overcome by the occasion as can be heard in the soundtrack.
Although Concorde G-BOAD will eventually be housed
inside in a new hall to be built on land, currently Concorde
is sitting on a barge beside the Intrepid. At the time of writing
she is cold and covered in snow!
It is a tragedy that this record-breaking supersonic
aircraft, with such grace and dignity as Concorde, should be
reduced to being lashed to a barge, with her engines removed
and sand in her forward fuel tanks. As time passes the distress
of the young lady becomes more and more poignant.
