Planes and Rains

Dearest of IFCs (I only know one)

Today was a day. I went to the Bourget Air and Space Museum because it was rainy and I was bored. As a pure coincidence, 31 other IF and IFC members were there at the exact same time!
We had (well I did, IDK about the others) a wonderful time, visiting the different parts of the museum and watching live streams of rapid, unexpected disassemblies.

Here are some pictures of today :)


A beautiful but very tired trans-all chilling (the newest addition to the museum)


An Airbus A380 being massive. I am 6 feet tall. For perspective, it was bigger than me.


A very tired Sukhoi in a depressing state


A Viggen, which I find very unsettling for some reason. The aesthetic is strange.


And its much thinner brother, also a bit unsettling.

The very first Concorde, 001, which was used as a prototype. I think this cockpit design should have been the final design.


Last but not least, the inside of the Concorde prototype testbed.

Thank you very much to everyone who came, it was an absolute pleasure to meet each and every one of you, and finally associate usernames to faces.
See you next time!

Thanks for putting it into perspective, I otherwise couldn’t have understood its size!

I’m going to need to see Laura officially sign a document giving you her seal of approval.

IDK if it’s official but it was eaten by Infinite Flight people so that’s at least half true :)

blud lookin really pointy all of a sudden

I guess being inside a concorde, not to mention the first prototype, must be really cool

Very nice shots as always @Robertine!
