Do you have a reference for that or are you possibly confusing it with
the B1B/2707 link ?.
Charlie was telling me about that over drinks in April, I think. And I
saw some mention of it in his blog more recently, not just as fiction.
Oh hey, yeah, real recently:
The last three paragraphs, mostly. I make no claims on the accuracy of
the statements made in someone else's blog.
Almost certainly a UL. Concorde 002 was the initial British prototype
fitted out with stress logging and similar development/flight test stuff.
Every flight is documented.
She has been on display at http://www.fleetairarm.com/concordeindex.htm
since 1976 where I have explored her several times. You would be welcome
to do the same for the price of an entry ticket and a chat to the right
people on a quiet day.
