The Concorde Platinum tour will launch on Mother’s Day, Sunday March 22, with prices starting from £35pp. Expert guides will take small groups around the aircraft, inside and out, pro- viding a highly personalised experience. Among the highlights is the chance to see Concorde’s flight deck come alive once again. Visitors will witness its famous nose droop, which helped pilots guide the aircraft to the ground after trips across the Atlantic at supersonic speeds. Guests will enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne, or orange juice, as they explore the aircraft and a keepsake photo in the cockpit. Robert Hassard, manager of the Run- way Visitor Park, said: “We are pleased to be launching this new visitor experience which will greatly improve the choice available to our guests. “It offers the chance to explore our iconic Concorde in more depth than ever before, with small groups enabling our guides to take a personalised approach and focus on the parts of the tour that intrigue our guests the most. “Concorde Platinum tours will become available from Mother’s Day and will make a great surprise for mums who love to travel, but will be running a couple of times a month thereafter as well.” For those taking the Platinum tour, car parking is free – giving families the chance to spend a fun-filled day out plane-spotting and making use of the play area. Youngsters can also treat their mums to lunch at the on-site restaurant, which provides unparalleled views across the airfield as over 500 daily flights arrive and depart. The Runway Visitor Park offers tours of other retired aircraft too, including a functional RAF Nimrod, with a range of educational experiences for youngsters aged four-12 also available during the school holidays.
