RIP: Concorde

My introduction to the Concorde was in Concorde: Airport '79, which featured a hilariously cheesy drone shaped like a calligraphy pen chasing after the noble plane. I had very little taste in movies then, but I adored that movie. I guess it's appropriate that my only real association with the Concorde is a airline-disaster flick, as the Concorde is finally being decommissioned, a retirement that was sped along by footage of flames shooting from its rear.
