    Brilliant presentation on the BBC website for all you aviation fans:

    A fascinating, inspiring and moving story.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    I really donít get why we are not celebrating this centenary. An amazing feat. It must have been the equivalent of the first man in space or on the moon. Statues tucked away. Change Manchester/Ringway to Alcock and Brown International.

    Iíve just frightened myself by recalling the 50th and putting the GPOís lovely commemorative stamp in my Stanley Gibbons album.

    There was a nice little segment on the one show.
    It brushed over the detail but at least it is out there.
