I’ve booked tickets to go on Concorde!

But sadly only in a museum!

The Easter holidays are not far away and, I am looking forward to attending the Geographical Association’s annual conference in Manchester.

I am staying at the Crowne Plaza at Manchester Airport which I hope will count towards my IHG Accelerate target.

Manchester Airport is home to one of British Airway’s Concorde following its decommissioning.


I have seen the one at Heathrow and in New York, as well as visiting the one at East Fortune near Edinburgh.

As I will have time and, being on my own, nothing better to do, I have booked tickets for the 0930 tour of Concorde on a Sunday morning. This is certainly a very geeky thing to do, but I am really looking forward to it and will report back on what it is like.

You can see here what else is on at the Runway Visitor Park at MAN.

Have you been to see Concorde? What was it like?
