My wings are like a shield of steel.
If were talking about the model "G-CONC" then it now resides with Concorde G-BBDG at Brooklands
Concorde 'AB that was beside 27R is now parked on one of BA's tech bases (I think)
AB is at the East End of LHR "hiding" in one of the BA Engine Test Bays - see Google Earth. Are they running the engines then and for why - a possible flight??
hi i was up at heathrow earlier today and i saw this also on google earth so i went to find concorde and i was expecting to see her in an engine testing thingy but it was tucked up round the side/back of ba maintenance hangers at the side of the airport with a fence around her which makes me think that there doing something to her because if i am right this one baob and the one at brooklands ( and the french and the prototypes) were the only ones that didnt have the fuel tanks filled with concrete so hopfully it would be nice if they were doing something with them ( maybe a flypast for the olympics would be good) ive added the photo i took sorry about the bad picture (it had to be a quick stop because you cant park anywhere around there and the fence is almost a solid fech so the holes in it are tiny and i took it on my iphone which dont have good cameras on them) but it should give you an idea though. as for running engines i know the one at le bouurget in france had a camera put in the engines to check them at the end of may last year and they were good so they had them up and running in october last year so if we ever did have a flying concorde it would probably be a french one ( rather it be a british one but its still a flying concorde if it happens)
Hello, to your question, and the person below, Concorde has now been moved around outside the TBA building within the east side of Heathrow (image by Carllos) and parked with a fenced off area.
Concorde has been parked along the main road of the eastern perimeter road for a number of years, but due to contractors (myself) we have been working on the new NIF (NOSE IN FIRST) facility based beside the large TBA building where Concorde was originally parked. the reason why Concorde is no longer parked there is because we have had to get it moved to allow us to Excavate the concrete is was parked on to allow room for a brand new Air Bridge to be built allowing BA to work in the interiors of the planes.
Concorde has now been moved around the opposite side of the TBA building within a fenced area, this is not because they are working on Concorde or considering it flying again but because we have a number of construction projects going on in the area, they have fenced it off to stop our construction traffic going near it. Concorde as you can see below is parked outside 1 of the larger hangers, this area is currently undergoing a project on both the hangers on the airside to raise the roof in the centre line to allow BA's new Airbus A380's (when delivered in 2012) to fit in the hangers.
Also some more information you may wish to know relating to concorde, you may see Concorde testing its Engines in the Engine De-tuner, but sadly we are currently working within this area and the De-tuners have been demolished and no longer exist. this area is going to be turned into another Plane Stand to allow more space for parking.
Hope this helps.
