Sun setting on Concorde

Taken by in June of 2006 at Manchester Airport’s viewing area. This is the best photograph I found of the Concorde Aeroplane. I was very¬†disappointed to find I couldn’t climb the steps to explore the interior of the plane. I could probably get a much better photograph if I went back in the early morning and had a wider lens (this photo doesn’t have the whole of the wings in frame). But I like the sun setting behind the plane. Before posting this photo I remember thinking that it was maybe six months before I took this photo that concorde took its last flight, but my clock was definitely wrong on this one. The last concorde flight was on 26th November 2003…time flies!
