Where Will You Be Taking Your Child This Weekend? Barbados Concorde Experience

 

Barbados Concorde Experience (2)

 

British Airways is celebrating its 60th anniversary in Barbados. This brings to mind its erstwhile plane of legend which graced the island for several years, the renown Concorde.

A couple of years ago, on a brief holiday to Barbados, my family and I visited the Barbados Concorde Experience. It was a rare opportunity for us to view the iconic supersonic aircraft. Again, this is a chance for education outside of the school setting. Children learn about the historic ties between Great Britain and Barbados while getting a lesson in aviation.

Besides tour guides and films, visitors are given the occasion to board the aircraft. If you have not gone to see it before, why not make the trip to Grantley Adams International Airport and check out the sleek Alpha Echo? You may find more information here.
