Copyright Photo: Paul Bannwarth. The ill-fated Air France Concorde 101 F-BTSC (msn 203) is pictured on final approach at Basel/Mulhouse on May 27, 1990. Sadly it would crash at Paris (CDG) on July 25, 2007.

The British “Save Concorde Group”, SCG, and the French “Olympus 593” are joining forces in an effort to possibly fly the Concorde again.
