Flying In the Concorde [Retromodo] from Gizmodo by Jesus Diaz
Yes, that's a real Concorde flying under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in New York City in November 2003, on route to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum—to which it just returned after its restoration.

And not only the thing was fast and pretty—in that futuristic seventies aesthetic that probably can make Jon Ive to faint—but it was a complete luxury to fly in it.
