I remember as a kid at Primary school seeing Concorde flying round about 1969-70, beecause they had a a lot of test flights from Thurleigh, just north of my town (and once mooted as the third London Airport), which had one of the longest runways in the country.

Now back in my home town, I'm looking forward to seeing Airlander 10, which has been dubbed "The Giant Arse", which is due to take flight soon (they were saying that six months ago), which is at Cardington, less than a mile from where I live.
