Miss the Concorde? Make Your Own

Some people just won't give up on the Concorde. While some are buying plastic models of the magnificent machine, and others are hoping to get a real one into a museum, others are working on preserving the simulators.

Others are just making their own.

We can't show you too much of this project, because... well, because other people have the copyright to it.

So, what we're doing here is giving you enough information to have a look at just how to create your own Concorde, from materials you can find at home. While it's not supersonic, it doesn't pollute, either; and a single flight won't use more fuel than you otherwise would in your lifetime. You can't carry PAX; but with a ream of paper, you can entertain 500 people.

And they make great party gifts.

[Special thanks to ANN News-Spy Derrick Vogt, for showing us how to make a Concorde we can afford!]
