http://www.britishairways.com/concorde/index.html is just embarrassing.
I love that they'll have your car cleaned and serviced for you while you

"Concorde measures 204ft in length - stretching between six and ten
inches in-flight due to heating of the airframe."

I don't expect Concorde to be flying for more than another 5 years (one
more crash and it will be permanently grounded).  Therefore, this is one
of the last chances for probably 25 years to fly supersonic and at an
altitude (60,000 feet) where you can see the curvature of the Earth.
