ATOG or Guest_Poster can you please enlighten me as to the physics behind how Concorde often caused the alarms a whole raft of cars to go off when it was flying subsonic near Heahrow? Vibrations? Noise Frequency?

Sorry BigDog, the guide we had at the Concorde in NYC didn’t go into that one.

He told us it was the one the Queen had flown in, in fact we sat in ‘her’ seat for the photos, and it is the world record holder for fastest ever transatlantic flight by a passenger aircraft…

I worked with a bloke years ago who was a co-pilot on Concorde too, there is just something inherently fascinating about that plane isn’t there? What a great shame it is no longer in the sky.
