When I was a kid in the mid 80s one of the Concordes came to the EAA Fly-In in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. They did at least one flight (with a portion of supersonic flight, I'm guessing) up and back from Oshkosh to Hudson Bay. I have no memory how expensive it was to get on that flight, but I remember the local TV stations all had a reporter and a camera man on it.

Not sure how much air show business Air France/British Airways did with the Concorde back in the day, but apparently they did make some rounds.
