By Tugboat, Crane And Tow Truck, Concorde Returns To Jamaica Bay
The Concorde supersonic transport jet that once flew the Atlantic Ocean in under three hours took nearly 12 hours last Friday to get from its former berth next to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan to its new parking spot next to the Aviator Sports complex at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. The 302-foot aircraft, still on its barge, was towed to Jamaica Bay and then lifted by a massive crane onto the tarmac at the former Naval air station. Then, it was towed across the field to its temporary parking spot. The Concorde will remain at the field until the Intrepid returns to Manhattan from its renovation in New Jersey.
