Moongazing Concorde

concorde

Instead of a moongazing hare, a moongazing concorde.  Except that its windows/eyes are covered in snow.

Weybridge

This 40% model of the famous aircraft used to be at the entrance to Heathrow Airport but, with the demise of its full sized brethren, the model was decommissioned.  It now stands sentinel at the entrance to Brooklands Museum and Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey.

  1. The Concorde is an absolutely beautiful airframe. I wish I had a chance to see it fly, but my age doesn’t allow. It’s a shame that the whole thing was cancelled…

    Nice shots! I think the blue sky and moon fit it well!

  2. When I was young, seeing this out of the window of a the moving car meant I was going on holiday somewhere amazing.

    Love that first shot, with the moon in the background.
