Concorde 'Alpha Charlie' to get a new home at Manchester

Recommended Posts

British Airways' flagship Concorde Alpha Charlie (G-BOAC) is getting a new home at Manchester Airport, England.After being permanently loaned by British Airways in October 2003 she has been kept out in all weather and in Manchester's notorious damp climate that cannot be a good thing.So, starting next spring, a new enclosure is being built together with a new visitor centre to do justice to this magnificent aircraft.Read the full story here http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/7686163.stm and more here http://www.manchesterairport.co.uk/manweb....cordeconferenceCheers,

You guys are normally ahead of us when it comes to something like this. :-)I believe the BA Concorde down in Barbados is also in a hanger. Probably just as necessary there with the strong sun and possibility of hurricanes.The only downside is that it won't be possible to get good shots any more but the condition of the aircraft is more important.
