A British Airways Concorde flew from London Heathrow to its final home at Filton airfield, near Bristol, UK yesterday (26 November).

The supersonic aircraft - the last to be retired - flew in a loop over the north Atlantic and English Channel at its top speed of 1,350 mph before touching down at the airfield, where it was built.

The Concorde, carrying 100 airline staff, was greeted at the Airbus facility by Prince Andrew and thousands of Concorde fans, reported The Associated Press.
