If you want to see Concorde’s last landing police have announced four recommended viewing areas for the final flight into Filton next Wednesday, November 26.

The seafronts at Portishead, Clevedon and Weston-Super-Mare, together with the Downs near the Clifton Suspension Bridge, will provide a good chance to see her homecoming between 12.45pm and 1pm, weather-permitting.

“We’ve worked closely with British Airways and Airbus UK to ensure that everyone who wants to see her homecoming will get the opportunity to do so in a suitable, safe place,” said Inspector Chris Ware.

Police are advising people to arrive early and use public transport wherever possible to minimise disruption.

Radio Bristol will be broadcasting further details on the day.
