I don't think you were the only one, Zac - Concorde occupied a special place in people's psyches and the Gonesse accident hit harder than what other air accidents did in the public conciousness. I was in the UK (working at the RAF Museum) when Concorde was retired in 2003 and it was big news round the country; those last flights made around airports throughout the country brought people out and turned them into plane-spotters like nothing had ever done before. a year or so later, Concorde won an Icon award for being the most recogniseable British 'thing' as voted by the public, up against the Spitfire, E-Type Jag, Underground map, Big Ben and other stuff. Still a very popular thing.
