G-BOAE (212) Condition

 

Concorde G-BOAE is in EXCELLENT Condition, she is the most complete Concorde of the entire BA fleet, and we are told she even has every single piece of cutlery and crockery in place. We have no concerns about this aircraft the staff and volunteers in Barbados give possibly the best tours world wide. Well done Barbados.

Since her arrival she has been under cover the only exception is when the hanger she was in fell the victim of a hurricane, a new hanger was quickly constructed and here she has been ever since.

Highly Recomended!
