British Airways Concorde G-BOAD, also known by its hull number 210, had a fascinating journey that mirrored the rise and fall of the supersonic Concorde itself. Here's a glimpse into its history:

  • Birth and Early Flights (1978): G-BOAD entered service in 1978.
  • Commercial Operations: It carried passengers at supersonic speeds on various routes for British Airways.
  • Final Farewell (2003): On November 10th, 2003, G-BOAD flew its last commercial flight from London Heathrow to New York JFK, marking the end of an era for Concorde.
  • Museum Display: Following its retirement, G-BOAD wasn't scrapped. Instead, it took a scenic route on a barge up the Hudson River, similar to how Space Shuttle external fuel tanks were transported, to its final destination - the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City. There, it became a prized exhibit for aviation enthusiasts to admire.

G-BOAD's story is a reminder of the technological marvel that Concorde was, and the allure of supersonic travel. If you're interested in learning more about Concorde's broader history, I can share some details about its development and eventual retirement.
