I Wish I Had Wings....

Spent a few hours at the Airbus Museum, would love to have toured the factory but the days it would be open, we would not have been here and I left it too late to book a tour and rework the itinerary.
The history of flight and what Airbus is planning for the future was outstanding.
Certainly won't be in my time.
 Leonardo Da Vinci's vision of flight.
 First crossing of the English Channel in a balloon by Blanchard and Jefferies.
7 January, 1785 
 Jacob Degen;s machine with flapping wings.
1806 - 1811 
 The Concorde.
 In the near future, the A380 will not be the biggest commercial plane in the air, they are designing the A350X. It will be a whopper, makes you wonder how it will get off the ground!!
Saw this monster fly over yesterday evening, looks like something you would see at the bottom of the ocean. It is massive.
Someone had fun building this Lego model.
