    I think that the Concorde itself should be put in large museums around the world, such as the Smithsonian. To think of them cut into pieces is very sad. Everyone should have a chance to see one, not just a select few.

    In recent news the main body and wings of the plane were on a barge headed up to a museum in Scotland, so at least one will survive intact.

    I just took a look at the auction site, it may me very sad. Just a little teary even, just call me sentimental. :(

    Do you know how many planes existed? Are all being destroyed except the one That I saw a photo on a barge to a museum. That was such an awesome plane. If not saved they will be lost for future generations.

    Perhaps you could buy the toilets and have them installed in your house.

    there's one at the USS Intrepid here in NYC. :D but yeah it is a shame that some are all chopped up, but how cool would it be to have that nose cone and funky windscreen?
