The Concorde nose cone which has been resident in the yard for some years was recently sold at auction for a substantial amount to a Hong Kong businessman, who intends to place it in a Swindon hotel. Whilst it was never fitted to a Concorde aircraft, it was a genuine, unique item, which generated a lot of publicity before the auction. The funds will enable us to move forward with several projects this year. The Chairman wanted to buy an BEA Routemaster bus but was overruled!!
