THE LAST CONCORDE TO FLY TAKES OFF FROM HEATHROW AIRPORT IN LONDON.
The final Concorde, Flight 216, takes off from London's Heathrow
Airport, en route to its birthplace Filton in western England, November
26, 2003. Concorde, which has made more farewell tours than Frank
Sinatra, let out its final supersonic roar on Wednesday as it hurtled
across the Bay of Biscay at twice the speed of sound before starting
its new earthbound life at a heritage centre being built in Filton.
