~ ADIEU CONCORDE ~

 

(c) www.cbc.ca 24/10/03


It seems so long ago: its testing in Toulouse,
So near where I grew up in early seventies.
Visit Calgary international airport,
Where I lived in early eighties. Couple of years
Ago, I remember so well how it rattled
Our windows in London at each daily take-off,
From Heathrow airport at eleven fifteen sharp.
Our baby daughter pointing up, saying "CO-cord".
Special edition on my flight simulator
Will help Concorde's virtual flight last forever.
