Brooklands Museum have been passionately restoring their Concorde G-BBDG since 2004. This aircraft was a Production test airframe and used to obtain the CoA and fine tune Concorde for airline use. 

Check weather for the day!

Viewing the nose move is extremely good from all positions around the front of the aircraft and from every angle, no problem here with viewing restriction as the aircraft is outside.
Currently no high view for the nose move is available so any photo's will be from the ground.
