Concorde a week late for last trip.

THE final journey of the last British Airways Concorde was cancelled last night due to tidal changes.

The aircraft was due to begin a nine-day journey by barge from London today to its final resting place, the Museum of Flight at East Fortune, near Edinburgh .

The 110-tonne load will still leave Heathrow by road for the dock at Isleworth where it will wait a week before setting off.

Concorde G-BOAA was the first to go into service with BA, in 1975. Its last flight was from New York to London in 2000.
