Concorde 206 was the first Concorde to be delivered to British Airways on Jan 14th 1976 with a 42 minute hop from RAF Fairford.

G-BOAA flew the inaugural BA Concorde service to Bahrain on the 21st of Jan 1976, which was captained by Norman Todd. Capt. Brian Walpole was at the controls 22 months later as Concorde services started to New York on 22nd November 1977.

Piloted by Captain Mike Bannister flew Alpha Alpha on the 2nd of June 1996 in formation with the RAF Red Arrows over Heathrow Airport the celebrate the 50th anniversary of the west London Airport, which has been Concorde's home since the late 1970's.

The aircraft was never fitted with the return to flight modifications mandated after the Paris accident. It was due a Inter4 (or c check), so was to have been the 7th and final aircraft in the fleet modified and returned to flight status. In 2004 is was dismantled to be moved by road and sea to East Fortune airfield, where she was fully re-assembled.
