Some were good students. Some have wonderful jobs. And they’re in never-never land because they don’t know what’s going to happen.”

    ....“The technological problems with airships that have stopped them ruling the skies have been gradually ticked off,” says Mr. Durham, technical director of Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), which makes the Airlander.” Advances in materials, avionics and aerodynamic design mean that we have overcome the lion’s share of these obstacles. This craft is part airship, part aircraft and part hovercraft. We have taken the best aspects of each machine and combined them in one hyper-efficient vehicle. Let me tell you, this isn’t the Hindenburg.”... A future design called Airlander 50 will lift 50 tons of cargo, five times more than a...

    HEAVY metal star Bruce Dickinson was returning to Britain last night after airlifting 200 Beirut evacuees to safety. The Iron Maiden singer, also a professional pilot, flew a Boeing 757 to Cyprus, where the Brits had fled to escape the violence. After touching down at RAF Akrotiri on the Med island, Bruce waited for the fully-boarded plane to be re-fuelled before being given clearance to fly back to Gatwick. The mercy mission was the idea of the rocker, whose Iron Maiden hits include Run To The Hills and Sanctuary. Dad-of-three Bruce, 47, is a first officer with London-based charter...
