From the official website of the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace in France:

In honor of the 40th anniversary of its first flight in 1969, the French Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace has restored Concorde F-BTSD (cn. 213) to flying condition and will take to the sky again on June 16, 2009 at 10:00 AM from Le Bourget Field at the Paris Air Show.

The restoration, which took place in secrcet, was funded by benefactors and aviation enthusiasts with the help of former Concorde maintenance technicians.

The two-hour flight will have F-BTSD departing Le Bourget with 50 passengers heading west out over Ireland for a trip above mach one. The last time this aircraft flew was June 2003.

Note the name of the chef.

The interior, frankly, sucks. In such a wide body, I do not think single aisle is making best use of the width.

And in-flight turbulence is more hazardous for candles falling over than a coordinated banking maneuvre.
