It would be fantastic to have a British concorde flying.

Maybe it could be used to bring back the victorious England World Cup squad - there's about an equal chance!

Actually, it's a French one that they are talking about resurrecting.

Either way, it isn't going to happen.

No chance!, Our's have all been allowed to rot and deteriorate, when they were taken out of service, it was said that the AF a/c would be preserved and kept in condition to return to the air.    I would dearly love to see that beautiful airframe get back in the skies where it belongs, but sadly am afraid it'll never happen - today's society is too litigatious (or should that be litigous?) for any company/corporation to take the chance, and I'm afraid Heritage flight costs would be well beyond the pocket of us mere mortals and working folk, for it to be a commercial venture!

Just had a thought, does Sir Richard Branson venture into this Forum, the resurrection of a Concorde or several, would likely be a far better investment and proposition, than Formula One - rather dismal performance so far, but even Red Bull have only be going a few years and look where they are now.
