London site for Concorde?

CONCORDE could be making an appearance in London, sadly not as a flyer, but as an added attraction to the rapidly growing South Bank leisure area and a companion to the Millennium Wheel, which originally was sponsored by British Airways.  The last remaining BA Concorde G-BOAB (serial no 208) is currently “resting” at Heathrow waiting to find a permanent UK home.  Initially planned to be a gate guardian at Terminal 5 it is presently open to offers as a loan.  The Thames site could prove ideal, a promotional item not only for British Airways but also Brooklands, the home of the first production Concorde, the only Concorde simulator in existence, and also the plastic Concorde that used to stand on the entranceway to the Heathrow central area.  A decision regarding the aircraft is thought to be imminent. www.brooklandsmuseum.com
