Yep, you did read that right – you can actually bid for a real Concorde toilet seat at an auction happening in south-western France. Think about all those famous people that have sat on it before you cross it off your wish list!
In addion to the toilet seat you can pick up cockpit instruments, oxygen masks, baggage compartments doors, speed indicators, plate-and-silverware sets, a 1.2-ton landing gear, a Mach-monitoring speedometer and a windshield.
The auction will last over 4 days and all funds will be used for n aeronautical park to be built in the French city.
Bidders unfortunately won`t be seeing any of those trademark concorde noses I`m afraid – three of them have already been under the hammer in London and Paris in 2003 and 2004 – the first of which went for more than half a million dollars.
The auction is being organised by Aerotheque, a non-profit association that inherited the Concorde stock from aircraft manufacturer Airbus. Hopefully they will be able to afford a new website after the auction!!!
