End of the Supersonic Dream

On this day in 2003 the final concorde flight landed at Heathrow airport. The last concorde to carry passengers left New York's JFK airport and touched down in London that afternoon. Tens of thousands of people turned out to bid farewell to the world's only supersonic airliner.  After twenty seven years British Airways has taken its fleet out of service.
