Its Not Just Large Its Collosus
Its Not Just Large Its CollosusNikon D5000
This isn't the front of the Collosus, it's the arguably more interesting back of the machine. Well perhaps I should say more photogenic, even then I think there would be some argument to be had bearing in mind that the front is a wall of lights and paper tape, more lights than tape though. This is (I was going to say of course but it's not that obvious) the National Museum of Computing which is in Bletchly Park, not part of Bletchley Park, no don't you go getting confused now thinking that entering Bletchley Park gives you any access to the first computer invented, oh no, it's separate museum.

Interestingly, the Bletchley Park Museum hints that it's human error that allowed us to break the German code in WWII, but it's the National Museum of Computing explained how this happened.

Rhino Too
Rhino TooNikon D5000
Well I thought that I recognised this chap from afar, but then again I am a little weird. I do that sort of thing to be honest. But as we were attempting to enter the maze at Adlington Hall I noticed it enough to want a picture when we left. It was a little surprise for everyone else who hadn't seen it there snuck to the left of the maze.

What it's weird is that I did think it looked similar to the rhino at Trentham Gardens and I sort of thought nothing of it. It was only until today when I checked and fund that it was the same as the rhino in Trentham Gardens. Despite the fact that it's the same, they are not owned by the same people as far as I am aware.

I would love to say that I have the set but I don't and do, because up until now there is only one, and it moved about.

The Safety Car is Out
The Safety Car is OutNikon D5000
It's been a long ay at Oulton Park, It starts early and b the time you end up getting home you're shattered. All well worth it though, and the first time we have been in one of the stands. The Stand we were in was a Lodge corner It's not a bad corner, quite fast and into the start/finish straight, but by that time, all of the pack seems to have settled down, still I think it was a relatively bog standard set of racing today, reasonably unchanged from lights to flag, mind you when I watch the replay that I have recorded, this may show a different picture. However one thing I haven't seen before is the Safety car breaking down. I'm not 100% sure if it was supposed to go in on that lap, but the pack decided that whilst it's lights weren't out, the fact that it was leaving the track was the signal that it was time to race. At that point the safety car halted. Needless to say that the picture is of one of the many times that the safety car came out.

Concorde Number Two
Concorde Number TwoNikon D5000
Now this just sounds like we're stalking Concordes now, but that's not the case, but the two in the title is interesting because this is Concorde 02 built in Filton and built as a test aircraft and not as a commercial aircraft. Taking off from Filton on the 9th of April 1969 and now resting in the Air Arm Museum in Yeovitton. Owing to the fact that the aircraft was a test aircraft then you seem to have more of a free run in and around the aircraft unlike the plush aircraft in Manchester/ However the interior of this one is slightly basic. I suspect the seats that are there are just for show as the aircraft would probably have been chock full of equipment and basic seats for people to work the equipment.

Of course, there are more things to see than the Concorde. It's a Navy Aircraft Museum as the name might have suggested and some really interesting exhibits such as one hall which is a mock up of an aircraft carrier, more specifically the Ark Royal. You see take offs and landings and get a tour round the Island and all of that after you take a 2 minute “flight” in a Sea King to the aircraft carrier.

Of course if you want to see the rest, then get down there, it's worth a visit.

Place du Concorde
Place du ConcordeNikon D5000
Well of course this isn't actually the Place du Concorde in Paris, but it is the place of Concorde, such a witty little aside for my broken French. On a no so routine trip out in as much as we were heading for the shops and my Wife decided that we must go and see Concorde, not sure what it was or why the sudden need but that's where we headed after getting som salad and other bit for tea.

When we turned up we saw a aircraft landing persued by two fire units and some sort of official looking police like car. I can only assume everything was fine and it was all precaution as there was nothing in the news and nothing much seemed to happen. Anyway, onto Concorde, it was only the quick tour so that's 10 minutes in Concorde and 10 minutes around the outside. As for the inside, it's really a rather normal looking aircraft, though we were warned before we boarded that the aisle was narror and in fact everything was rather narrow so we would be unable to walk to abreast in the aisle... I'm not sure what cargo planes the guide has been on but I don't think I have every beon on a plane where it's been easy to walk down one abreast with a cabin bag let alone two. Still there is plenty of leg room and nice leather seats, you could almost be on a Lufthansa flight. The outside is quite impressive as you could imagine, though again, I was imagining something a lot larger, still, it's worth the tenner to walk around it.
