On 24 October, Duxford Aviation Society (Cambridgeshire, eastern England) revealed newly-restored features on its Concorde, to an audience of invited guests, at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford on the eleventh anniversary of the last commercial Concorde flight.
Following eighteen months of painstaking restoration work, this Concorde now features fully-functional cockpit lighting and the operation of the aircraft’s famous droop nose. This is the only Concorde in the UK with the ability to operate the nose mechanism.
