Pushing the Concorde Back!

Pushing the Concorde Back!
Photo taken in 2003.

To many's surprise (even the Torontonian planespotters), British Airways' Concorde Farewell Tour included a stop in Toronto. We're just pleasantly, proudly shocked! On 2003-10-01, the Concorde flew to Toronto from London Heathrow, then undertook the Toronto-New York JFK-London Heathrow flight.

The Toronto-New York JFK segment was sub-sonic (it's after all a 45-minute flight for an Airbus A319).

It being October, the sun sets early and I was using a crappy camera (an auto-focus with a 140 mm zoom), it's quite a bit of backlit, and most importantly, I was not (and still am not) a good photographer, which explains the poor quality of the photos.

Ah, but they're mine and I'm just glad to have some photos of the Concorde at all!
