    Congrats on your double win. I can spend days in these museums without any problem.

    Thx, all, for the comments and support. I hoped that the constriction and clutter would help convey the plight of the entrapped Concorde and that the figure would add scale.

    Ha! This was my #2. Beautiful shot, congrats.

    I can't help feel that the loss of the iconic nose has hurt this photo somewhat. That hanger is a work of art too though! GL.

    Definately big!

    I like the lines and clarity. In my top few.

    Shooting in aerospace museums is a real challenge, and you've captured a beautiful, clean shot with excellent detail. The Concorde is such a beautiful airplane - I wonder if we'll ever see its like again.

    Sharp crisp image...the lattice roof structur made an imteresting back drop. In my TT.

    I'm tormented by the setting....this great bird trapped and cramped and crowded....I sensed at first this was an unintended by product of your attempt to get it all in but then I saw your title, a cute play on Le Canard enchaîné, and I instantly realized that you pulled it off beautifully....except the figure and the background clutter. This is so good with the roof and floor that I would have gone surreal with the image and really made the effort to preserve the roof and building structure but gone out of the box on the rest. I saw the last Concorde departure from Toronto....it was my first and last view of this great aircraft in flight. I feel we've lost some of our ability to dream; to surpass by our earthly efforts and reach for the stars...."per ardua ad astra".

    I wish the nose wasn't cut off, but maybe that adds to the sense of "bigness". Very high in my TT. Great light.

    spot on BIG
the Bristol version is still out side in all weathers and bad access.

saw the uk maiden flight and she regularly flew overhead on route to the US over the top of the SS Great Britain in Bristol usually at 6 minutes past 1200 noon her normal daytime take off from Heathrow, check on google for both cities. the white shape with jet trail then you heard the noise if your lucky. my colleague who get a text from his son at Heathrow
"she flies" which on odd occasions after she had passed overhead
