The Airship over London

You can’t fail to have seen the “Star Over London” helium blimp floating around the last couple of days. It’s quite a sight as it soars over Greenwich Park. I wish they’d make it a permanent feature (but perhaps without the Wife Beater logos on the side). Tickets are a rather steep £185 – £360, depending on the length of your flight, and can be booked here.

Perhaps Boris will decide to subsidise it, and we’ll all be able to commute to work in a flock of TfL airships using our oyster cards?
