The Last Summer

Peter Marlow

Magnum photographer Peter Marlow documented the last days of the Concorde before its 2003 retirement. His images feature the plane's infamous dart -shaped silhouette alongside its enthused spectators.

Superb presentation/slide-show/photo-essay or whatevery you want to call it! Concordes used to shake my house throughout the Monaco GP week-end as they made repeated stops at Nice airport to pick up passengers for quick tours around the Mediterranean. However, no-one in the neighbourhood really complained - they generally rushed out to try to catch a glimpse of the beast passing over. I guess a lot of people have their own private Concorde story locked up somewhere, waiting to get out.
