This day in history...Nov 26

It seems to be a very quiet day in terms of aviation history today so I cant even manage a trio.

The first though is a truly momentous moment with G-BOAF a British Airways Concorde making the last ever flight of the type to permanent retirement at Bristol Filton in 2003.

I had been very lucky to fly this particular aircraft back in 1983 on a charter - a moment never to be forgotten.

One remains at London Heathrow difficult to view properly from outside.

Other examples had already been sent to museums around the world. G-BOAC is at Manchester, seen here before its protective building was constructed.

Ten years later UP! was founded by it's Israeli parent company El Al.
