Concorde takes to the sky for first time in years

A Concorde took to the sky for first time in 16 years - at one of the biggest model aircraft shows in the UK.

The 12-foot petrol-powered plane soared through the sky at the annual Woodspring Wings Model Aircraft Show near Yatton, North Somerset.

Pilot Andy Johnson, 47, converted the polystyrene and plywood British Airways model - worth around £3,000 - by removing its propellers and installing an engine.

It is capable of ascending two miles and is controlled with a handheld device.
