Supersonic Surveyor helps with Concorde’s final journey

The last Concorde owned by British Airways left Heathrow on Saturday night (3rd April) and took to the water on the first step of its seaborne journey to Scotland. Concorde G-BOAA was moved by transporter along the A30 and A4 from Heathrow to the Thames port of Isleworth, where it was loaded on to a specialist 2,000 ton barge. Ken Morgan of Aston Rose acted on behalf of National Museums of Scotland in ensuring its smooth passage – from liaising with local residents and businesses to prunng a few trees on the final stretch of its land journey down to the river. The G-BOAA aircraft will commence its journey up to Britain’s east coast on 12 April and, after restoration, is expected to go on display later Summer at the Museum of flight, East Fortune near Edinburgh.
