Concorde in the Smithsonian

Air France has turned it’s oldest Concorde over to the Smithsonian.

It’s a shame they’ll never fly again.:frowning:

This has been in the works for a while. I took a tour of the Air and Space Museum’s old storage facility a couple years ago. I asked the tourguide if there were any current planes that they wanted to acquire. He said Air France had already picked out which of the Concordes they were going to donate once it was taken out of service. I don’t think they were expecting it to be quite this soon, though.
