    ^^ Concorde nose cone up for auction


    Collectors will bid on a rare piece of aviation history this week when a nose cone from the original Concorde
    passenger plane goes to auction in the United Kingdom.




    The 11ft (3.35m) tall cone is said to be the only unused nose cone from the few that were originally made for the Concorde
    fleet in the 1970s.


    The BBC reported a price of between GBP 45,000 ($79,730) and GBP 60,000 ($106,000) has been set by JP Humbert
    Auctioneers in Towcester, Northamptonshire.


    The supersonic passenger transport's last commercial flight took place on October 23, 2003.
    "We appreciate this is not an inexpensive item," auctioneer Jonathan Humbert said.


    "But I'd be hard pressed to think of a more exclusive and iconic item to sell than a famous nose cone from the world's
    fastest commercial plane."


    The auction will take place on Thursday.

    Concorde was a supersonic passenger jet which had a maximum speed twice the speed of sound.

    That traffic cone must have had its day.

    Great pictures looks like you had a good time. Those pics out the plane window make me a bit sick. We just got home yesterday after 24 hours in the air.

    Very nice Jack.


    Great, in fact. Cheers.



    A much worse pic of Concorde next to LHR Terminal 2 Runway.



    Found out that my uncle flew on it once to NY.
