When British Airways ended its supersonic passenger service, its seven Concorde airliners found new homes in museums.
G-BOAA, the last of the seven, was removed from Heathrow in April 2004, in preparation for a move to the Museum of Flight at East Fortune near Edinburgh. It was taken by road to Isleworth on the Thames, where it was loaded onto a special 2,000-tonne barge for the journey to Scotland.
On 12 April, the barge sailed down the Thames through London. Although its wings and tail had been removed, Concorde's majestic shape is unmistakable. Thousands came to watch Concorde's last appearance in London.
