BA announced this week that the very last, final, no-more-after-this Concorde flight ever in history will be from Heathrow, via the Bay of Biscay, to Filton, Bristol, on Nov. 26, as the last flying Concorde returns to its birthplace at Airbus UK. Meanwhile, the final homes for each of the fleet have been announced. One of the Air France airplanes has been donated to the National Air & Space Museum, and arrived in Virginia this summer. Two of the BA birds will also come to the U.S.: one arrived in New York this week en route to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum, and one has already flown in to the Museum of Flight in Seattle. Air France also gave one airplane to the Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim in Germany, but the rest of its fleet will stay in France -- one at the Air and Space Museum outside Paris at Le Bourget, another to be featured in a future aeronautics theme park in Toulouse, and one will be on display at the Roissy - Charles de Gaulle Airport, near Paris. The rest of BA's Concordes will go on display at Airbus UK in Bristol, Manchester Airport, the Museum of Flight near Edinburgh, Heathrow Airport, and Grantely Adams Airport in Barbados.
