Issue Name: Concorde Final Flight to Filton Flown Cover
Producer: Buckingham Covers
This is perhaps the most important of our last flight covers because it was flown on the last ever Concorde flight from London Heathrow to Filton on 26th November 2003. On this last flight, Concorde travelled at Mach 2 over the Bay of Biscay. Three Captains flew Concorde on this final flight: Captain Mike Bannister, Captain Les Brodie and Captain Paul Douglas. They all wanted to fly her that one last time! What an End of an Era.All our Concorde Returns Home covers are very much in demand.
Our tribute cover features a stunning image of Concorde and has a 1st class stamp and 'Final Flight into Filton', Bristol postmark (26th November, 2003). It has been doubled with a stamp and 'Farewell to Concorde' Heathrow Airport postmark (24th October, 2003), along with a 1969 Concorde stamp and cachet, and a 'Flown on Board the World's last Flight of Concorde' cachet.
