Watch as Concorde returns to Intrepid following refurbishment

Watch live as the British Airways Concorde returns to the Intrepid Museum after being refurbished.

The retired supersonic jet was taken back to a Manhattan pier on Thursday 14 March, following a seven-month restoration.

It travelled by barge up the Hudson River before being lifted by a crane onto Pier 86.

The needle-nosed aircraft left Pier 86 on 9 August 2023 for a restoration project at the Brooklyn Navy Yard that included sanding and repainting.

It was barged from Brooklyn to a Jersey City, New Jersey, dock for storage overnight Wednesday, prior to being reinstalled on the pier a day later.

The Concorde is the only supersonic commercial jet that ever flew.

The Intrepid’s British Airways Concorde still holds the record for the fastest transatlantic crossing by a passenger aircraft - 2 hours, 52 minutes and 59 seconds from London Heathrow to New York’s John F Kennedy airport.
