Barbados Concorde Experience

Postby KarenS » Thu Apr 26, 2007 7:31 am

From a recent press release from Travel Weekly:
THE BARBADOS CONCORDE EXPERIENCE was unveiled April 16 in a $3.5 million, 28,000-square-foot facility at Grantley Adams Airport. The attraction includes a virtual flight school, a departure lounge, an observation deck, an inflight experience, a multimedia presentation and the aircraft itself. Barbados beat out more than 70 other countries to showcase the supersonic aircraft, which traveled at twice the speed of sound. Only 20 Concordes were manufactured -- six for development and 14 for commercial aviation operations. The Barbados Tourism Investment agency hopes to develop a permanent aviation museum in the near future to house the Barbados Concorde Experience, according to Anthony Ellis, chairman. The Barbados Concorde Experience is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $17.50 for adults and $12.50 for children 12 and under. Special group rates are available.
