Concorde comes out to play in the sun

There is some filming at east base with a 747 and concorde if anyone is interested... Not very often you get to see AB these days!

I saw this as I drove past earlier today, looked like she has been treated to a wash and even had the engine covers off. G-CIVY was also there on the 'film set' - not sure what it's all for but would love to know....

I have always thought it a shame that somebody didn't apply a bit of brain power when T5 was being built and find a parking slot preferrably near T5A/B.

she should have been put into the middle of the terminal! The Concorde room could have had a whole different meaning then!

Seeing the photos from the Seattle Museum of flight, they should have hung her from the roof above the area where the lifts/escalators are for T5B/C.

Instead of World Duty Free, BA should have placed the Concorde in that space in T5

In all seriousness though, I wish there was a space somewhere around T5 for it. The model Concorde that was on the roundabout for Heathrow Central should have been hung in the Galleries entrance where the Cloud is.

Donn't think there's enough room there!

They should have either built a larger entrance or built a smaller model then
