On the afternoon of October 1, 2003 (departing Oct. 2), British Airways Concorde paid her final visit to Toronto's Lester B Pearson International Airport. Thousands of onlookers lined the fences and streets around the airport, gathered on the roof of Terminal One's parking garage, or found whatever vantage point they could to catch one final glimpse of one of the noisiest, smelliest ...and most graceful aircraft to ever frequent YYZ. Even when she stood still, she appeared to be in flight!
Airline And Airport Links.com is pleased to present these photos as a small commemoration of that day.
