I remember that going past when I was fishing off Beachy Head as a youngster. It was en-route to London for Mrs T to travel up the Thames on it. I remember it because of the noise that preceded it - only surpassed by a Lancaster at about 50' a few years later*.

The project manager on that - Steve Ridgway - became head honcho at Virgin Atlantic.



* I did go home inbetween times.
