Concorde flying over NW England

Concorde flying over North West England is recreated here using a photo of the aircraft taxiing on the ground and an aerial shot taken over Cheshire at around 20,000 feet. Below right its the town of Macclesfield, with the Pennines beyond. On Wednesday 23 October 2003 Concorde made a farewell visit to Manchester Airport.

Even if the world's only supersonic airliner has been permanently grounded, we can still recreate the magnificent sight of Concorde in flight thanks to the magic of digital image enhancement. I wonder if the nose cone would still be down at this height.
