Concorde – number 216, registration G-BOAF being moved to an indoor hangar in preparation for it becoming the centrepiece of a new £16 million aerospace museum in Filton, Bristol. 

The last Concorde made its final journey to a new home on 7 February 2017 – just a quarter of a mile and at a walking pace.

The iconic supersonic plane was towed across an airfield to an indoor hangar in preparation for it becoming the centrepiece of a new £19 million aerospace museum.

Bristol Aviation Centre, which will celebrate the city’s aviation history, is due to open this summer.

This particular Concorde – number 216, registration G-BOAF – was the last of 20 to be built and flew at twice the speed of sound.

It made its final flight on November 26, 2003, returning home to Bristol where it has stood since by the side of Filton Airfield.

Locals and fans campaigned for a ‘proper home’ for the aircraft and were delighted when plans were announced for the museum a short distance across the airfield.

Crowds watched yesterday as the plane was tugged into the building, which is still under development.
