Hello, yes it has been a few weeks since I last wrote. Where does the time go?  Certainly fast and perhaps it seems as fast as this plane. This cover from a friend of mine in Cebu.

If we think the days and weeks go fast, think how fast 39 years has gone by. – Yes 39 years ago that Concorde flew its inaugural scheduled London Heathrow – New York flight and just over 40 years since its first flight.

Lost of trivia can be read about Concorde. Two of my favourites:

Concorde was impeded from flying over Saudi Arabian airspace as it was felt that noise from the aircraft would disturb camel breeding.

Phil Collins used Concorde to perform at Live Aid concerts in London and Philadelphia on July 13, 1985.
