Today is the tenth anniversary of the last ever flight of Concorde, the supersonic plane which was designed and built in Bristol.

In 2003 thousands turned out to watch Concorde 216 fly over the West Country before touching down at Filton.

The plane has remained there ever since despite plans to build a museum to house her.
