Concorde frenzy seems to know no end. A London auction of
Concorde memorabilia pulled in some heavy dollars... well ahead of
the most flighty expectations. The crown jewel of the show, though,
was the very nose of the Concorde, itself.
Retired in October, the nose cone was auctioned off to a
Hungarian-born bidder by the name of Ferenc Gaspar, who claims he
got the bargain of the event... for only $551,600!
The price was ten times that expected, but the US based civil
engineer is but one of many who bid heavily on the speedy souvenirs
that defined an aeronautical generation.
Among the 128 lots auctioned were a Mach Indicator, which went
for over $48,000, a captain's seat for nearly $45K and a scale
model of the bird that sold for over $29K.
Proceeds of he auction are being donated to charity.
Approximately $1.3 million dollars was raised.
