The photographs featured in this screensaver were all taken by myself at Manchester, now home to retired Concorde registration G-BOAC, or "Alpha Charlie". Supersonic passenger flight is no more, and British Airways is now just another airline, operating bland, faceless aircraft, just like all the rest.
At one time, BA (and Air France lets not forget) stood out from the rest, operating this stunning aircraft as their flagship service, identifiable by even those who have no interest in aviation per se. That has gone now, despite the best efforts of Mr Branson to keep one or two supersonic jet airliners in service. The country is that little bit more dull as a result.
