Don’t fret if NASA passed up your place as one of the Shuttles’ permanent homes as there are plenty of avation icons to go around. Like this Concorde. It’s only $150k. But there’s a catch. Yeah, there’s always a damn catch, but in this case I think it’s better this way.
You see this isn’t a real Concorde. Nope, it’s a 1/2 scale model of the real thing and used to sit atop a British Airways advert in Times Square. This is good. You don’t want a real Concorde. What the hell are you going to do with it? It’s not like you can fly it anywhere. No, what you want is a Concorde to show off to your drinking buddies and this one plays that part nicely. Just think, you get most of the fame of owning a Concorde without the expense of constant upkeep and maintenance. I say go for it. The model will be auctioned off during the Bonhams Space History Sale on May 5th. [Dvice]
