Lovely to see Concorde again, and all those wonderful 70's hairstyles. Smile

The moment right now, it's a tragically regressive time we live in, you know. We just grounded the Concorde. Where's the future? We've lost the future.

Grey skies and black and white prints. I've still got the brushes and the touching up ink somewhere, Great photograph and I couldn't agree more with Leo. A window on the past.

I have removed the 'Concorde' tag - looking closely, the engine nacelles seem rounded, and a long way out...

I have confused myself.

Works for me! A lovely composition. When I see images like this I understand the urge to recall the 'good old days' with fondness. However, I can't help thinking that they only seemed that way because we survived them! I would have been sixteen at the time you took this photograph so of course the world seemed rather wonderful and optimistic ... notwithstanding the cold war, terrorism, industrial disputes, any number of regional wars etc. The good old days? My posterior! But many happy memories nonetheless. Smile
Right, that's 'Thought for the Day' over ....... Blush ....... Smile
Thanks John, you've made an old man very happy!

I have confused myself.

It could be Concord(e), John. The engine inlets were square, but round at the rear. The tail is definitely the correct shape...

I think I was was there! My father-in-law worked at the RAE and they lived in Farnborough. We usually left the kids with Granny while we visited the show. They saw most of the flying from the back garden!

That looks like Concord. The majority of images of Concordski at displays show the flag of the USSR on the tail-fin. Interesting to see Blackbird under the wing of that Galaxy(?)

I was 11 at teh time and just getting into all things aeronautical, and would've really liked to go to Farnborough.
Thanks for pointing out the Blckbird George. I had a model of the Galaxy.

Is it Concorde? The body looks a bit tubby but is it the angle it was taken at? Still a step back it time.

Supersonic picture. Airplane shows used to be the most film consuming endeavour in respect to imperfect frames.
