Recommended Posts

This man really wanted a concorde nose Cone :))LONDON (Reuters) - A nose-cone from Concorde, the world's only supersonic airliner until it was retired in October, fetched a stratospheric $551,600 at an auction Monday -- nearly 10 times the expected price.In frantic transatlantic bidding, the trademark droop snoot was bought by Hungarian born but U.S.-based civil engineer Ferenc Gaspar, a self-confessed Concorde fanatic who said he got a bargain"WOW

I'm wondering what one would actually DO with a Concorde Nose Cone!! I can think of alot of things to spend 500,000.00 on. A nose cone isn't one of them!!
