Place du Concorde
More Pictures by Nikon D5000

Well of course this isn't actually the Place du Concorde in Paris, but it is the place of Concorde, such a witty little aside for my broken French. On a no so routine trip out in as much as we were heading for the shops and my Wife decided that we must go and see Concorde, not sure what it was or why the sudden need but that's where we headed after getting som salad and other bit for tea.

When we turned up we saw a aircraft landing persued by two fire units and some sort of official looking police like car. I can only assume everything was fine and it was all precaution as there was nothing in the news and nothing much seemed to happen. Anyway, onto Concorde, it was only the quick tour so that's 10 minutes in Concorde and 10 minutes around the outside. As for the inside, it's really a rather normal looking aircraft, though we were warned before we boarded that the aisle was narror and in fact everything was rather narrow so we would be unable to walk to abreast in the aisle... I'm not sure what cargo planes the guide has been on but I don't think I have every beon on a plane where it's been easy to walk down one abreast with a cabin bag let alone two. Still there is plenty of leg room and nice leather seats, you could almost be on a Lufthansa flight. The outside is quite impressive as you could imagine, though again, I was imagining something a lot larger, still, it's worth the tenner to walk around it.
