Classic Racing

This is the support vehicle that travelled with classic grand prix racers like Stirling Moss. Think of what a grand prix team looks like today.

Wing Walkers

These brave young ladies and their equally daring pilots entertained the crowds at leuchars Air Show with their "wing walking" trickery.

Edible Freddie

This figure of Freddie Mercury was made for a birthday cake over three years ago. He's still living in a fridge in Renfrew, alongside a similar sugar art horse!

Airbus A380

Two decks, the full length of the aircraft. The Airbus A380 is the largest capacity airliner ever built. Such is its size and capacity, airlines and terminals have had to build new facilities to cope with it.

This example was on a training flight which incorporated visits to several UK airports, including Prestwick where this photo was taken. Wing sections of the A380's much smaller relative, the A320, are constructed at BAE Systems, Prestwick.

They came tonight to burn the markings off the road. Now that is a scary looking tool. Basically looks like a high pressure jet of air passing through a tube of red hot metal.
