Concorde

This  photo was forwarded to me by Allan Bowman and shows the Concorde F-BVFF in NZ.
As far as I know this aircraft visited NZ on five occasions:-
13/16-09-1994 Christchurch.
08/11-10-1994 Christchurch. This flight co-incided with exhaust emission sampling flight by the NASA ER-2.
06-10-1995 Auckland.
05-02-1997 Auckland.
19/22-10-1997 Auckland.

This airframe (c/n 215) first flew as F-WJAN on 26-12-1978 and went to Air France as F-BVFF on 23-10-1980.
It had flown 12,421 hours at the time of its withdrawal and can now be seen at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris
