Farewell Concorde

October 1st, 2003

Tim Aiello IM’d me to tell me that the Concorde was about to land at Toronto for its last time as part of its three-stop final North American tour.

Since I happened to be at a client’s office right on the other side of Highway 401 with a third-storey panoramic view of the runways, I was able to stand at the window and watch it land (unfortunately on the northernmost east-west runway so it was a bit small but still fantastic).

End of an era of commercial supersonic flight.
