Concorde to fly by 2019: Club Concorde
Sept 19, London: According to reports funds have been raised to buy a Concorde with the aim of getting it flying again by 2019.
According to the British Club Concorde, which consists of former captains, charterers and aviation fans, says it has £120m in reserve for the "return to flight" plan.
Reports suggest that the group also plans to put another of the supersonic aircraft on permanent display in central London.
Concorde, which can travel at twice the speed of sound, last flew in 2003. Club Concorde president Paul James according to a report by BBC said that they were hoping to source both the display and flight jets from France but no agreements had yet been made.
"We have been overwhelmed by the amount of enthusiasm and people wanting to invest," Mr James said.
"The support shows how much people still admire Concorde and want to see it flying again.
