CONCORDE ON THE RIVER THAMES
Tuesday 13 April
4.30pm-6pm between Lambeth and Westminster Bridges
Concorde G-BOAA will spend most of Tuesday moored at
Nine Elms, Vauxhall, having left Chiswick Reach at
midnight. She is due to arrive in Lambeth Reach -
between Lambeth and Westminster Bridges - at about
4.30pm. The fuselage will not be visible from the
riverside for most of her journey on the Thames because
she is inside the heavy lift vessel Terra Marique.
However, there is a photo opportunity planned opposite
the Palace of Westminster between 4.30pm and 6pm when
the plane will be raised up from the barge for viewing.
Concorde will pass under Westminster Bridge at about
6pm, reaching Blackfriars Bridge 25 minutes later. She
will pass through Tower Bridge at approximately 6.45pm.
