The Concorde sim at Filton was ancient when she retired, I believe running on 8″ floppy disk technology!

Very much doubt it would be in working order these days, probably impossible to get parts for, even if it is intact.

When I did some consulting work at BA, I remember one of their IT managers telling me he’d been asked to look at moving it from BAE Filton to Cranebank (to save the cost/hassle of crews having to go there), so he went down with a couple of engineers, who took one look at it and said words to the effect it was almost 100% that moving it to Heathrow would stop it working and they wouldn’t be able to fix it.
