When Concorde took to the skies more than 40 years ago she eptomised a new age of scientific and technological innovation. Famously travelling faster than the speed of sound, Concorde flew from London to New York in under four hours.
The National Museum of Flight is home to Scotland's only Concorde wher eyou can climb aboard to discover what transatlantic flight was like for passengers and crew and learn about the legacy of this iconic aircraft.
Scotland’s Concorde, Golf-Bravo Oscar Alpha Alpha, was the first of her kind to go into service with British Airways, in 1976. 8,064 flights later, she came to rest at the National Museum of Flight in East Fortune after the Concorde fleet was decommissioned in 2003. You can find out more about her in our Explore section.
Concorde is housed next to the museum shop and Aviator Café. Entry is included in museum admission. A FREE audio tour is available, offering an in depth perspective on the famous plane, with commentary from former Concorde pilot Captain Jock Reid.
