Concorde Comes Home

Concorde Comes Home by Adrian Rigby

BA Concorde on approach to Heathrow over London

Comes also with a photograph of
Capt Christopher Orlebar signing the prints


Some words from the Artist:
"When I was asked to produce a painting to commemorate Concorde's imminent retirement, my reaction was one of excitement and apprehension. Excitement because Concorde is a truly beautiful aircraft and an icon of the modern world; and apprehension because it is a real artist's challenge to do justice to the aircraft's sleek simple lines.


Heathrow is Concorde's home and therefore a view of the aircraft over London on its final approach to the World's busiest airport seemed appropriate. Needless to say, I spent a huge amount of time getting the city accurate, as a number of landmarks are visible.
Though not a street by street rendition of the city, I hope that people can pick out the Millennium Bridge, the Natwest Tower, Tower Bridge and beyond that, the hazy outline of Canary Wharf. In contrast to the city, Concorde's lines are simple and uncluttered by detail-the three-quarter viewpoint showing the jet off to the best advantage.It is sad to know that one of the greatest aircraft in aviation history will soon no longer be flying. It is a true example of art and science working together to produce a masterpiece"
