One year ago yesterday

Exactly one year ago yesterday, the British-French supersonic airliner Concorde made its last ever flight from London's Heathrow airport to Filton in Bristol. Only 20 Concordes were ever built, though they did spawn the short-lived Soviet imitation - the Tupolev TU144, nicknamed "Concordski". Today, the remaining Concordes have been scattered to aviation museums around the world, including Scotland's Museum of Flight in East Lothian.
