Paris says farewell to Concorde

Paris says farewell to Concorde

French President Jacques Chirac has paid tribute to the retiring supersonic passenger plane Concorde at the 45th Paris air show.

The president, along with hundreds of spectators, applauded as one of Air France's Concordes performed a flight of honour over Le Bourget airport, before landing and taking its place at the nearby Air and Space Museum.

Air France retired its fleet in May, and in June donated the oldest of its five Concorde aircraft to the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in the US.

British Airways will put its Concordes out of commission by October.
