British Airways Concorde to be housed at Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2003 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

A British Airways Concorde aircraft is reportedly scheduled to enter New York Harbor on a boat.

The 88-ton supersonic aircraft is to be added to the aircraft collection at the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum. The aircraft will be housed on its own barge next to the Intrepid pier, rather than being placed on the World War II aircraft carrier's flight deck.

British Airways decided to cancel its Concorde services earlier this year due to high fuel and maintenance costs and a decline in passenger numbers. Air France has also retired its Concorde fleet.
