Maiden flight for world’s largest aircraft

first_imgThe 302 ft (92 m) Airlander 10 rose slowly into the air from Cardington airfield. 

A hybrid of blimp, helicopter and plane, it can stay aloft for days at a time and has been nicknamed the ‘flying bum’ because of its bulbous front end.The stately aircraft performed a circuit of the area before touching down 30 minutes later as dusk fell.The Airlander is designed to use less fuel than a plane, but carry heavier loads than conventional airships. Airlander is expected to be a showcase of UK innovation and is already being used in the UK Government’s “GREAT Britain” campaign to highlight the strength of the aerospace sector and the innovation in engineering this country is capable of creating. Customer interest has increased, particularly in the defence and security sector, and this, together with UK Government support should secure 400 new aerospace jobs as well as valuable export opportunities for the UK economy.The next step is to ensure the UK Government runs a trial in order to demonstrate the potential of this amazing aircraft to the world and secure the lucrative exports.For our previous report on the Airlander 10, see here: http://www.heavyliftpfi.com/news/airlander-10-leaves-hangar.htmlwww.hybridairvehicles.comlast_img read more

Abellio awarded Greater Anglia franchise

first_imgUK: The Department for Transport named Abellio Greater Anglia Ltd as the winner of the Greater Anglia (Short) passenger train operating franchise on October 20. Following the required procurement standstill period, the Nederlandse Spoorwegen subsidiary will be formally appointed on November 1. The short franchise runs for 29 months from February 5 2012 to July 2014, when it is scheduled to be replaced by a 15-year long-term franchise which will draw on the findings of Sir Roy McNulty’s Rail Value for Money Study published earlier this year. DfT said the latest franchise agreement includes improvements to stations, ticket facilities and passenger information, including text message delay alerts. Abellio will be responsible for many of the services to the 2012 Olympic Games venues at Stratford. The operator rather than Network Rail will take responsibility for station repairs and renewals. Oyster smart card ticketing will be extended to 10 more stations on the lines to Shenfield and Hertford East, and mobile phone and print-at-home ticketing introduced. Electric car charging points will be installed at 20 stations, a bus link provided between Audley End station and Saffron Walden for a six-month trial, and PlusCab pre-booked taxis offered from 45 stations. Punctuality figures will be published by route. Abellio is the brand for Dutch national passenger operator NS’s rail and bus activities outside the Netherlands. It holds the Merseyrail and Northern Rail franchises in partnership with Serco and has been shortlisted for the new Intercity West Coast franchise. It operates buses in London and the Czech Republic, and provides rail and bus services in Germany. Bids for Greater Anglia were also submitted by Eastern Railway Ltd (Go-Ahead Group), and Stagecoach Anglia Trains Ltd (Stagecoach Group). Incumbent operator National Express was not shortlisted.

Moving Tribute in Memory of Castle Douglas Doctor Jim Duck

first_imgJennie said: “We’re privileged, and I know that dad would be really pleased.“This health centre was a really big part of his life – he worked here for over half of his life – and he loved it. He loved being a GP, getting to know his community, he was part of a really good team, and he put an awful lot into it in terms of his time and energy and passion, and he got a lot out of it as well.“So I’m sure he’d be pretty chuffed that he was remembered like this, long-term.”Addressing the strength of affection within the community for Dr Duck, Jennie added: “That’s something that his family are really proud of. He was a good man, a good dad, and a good doctor, and it’s really nice that people will remember that.” Explaining the background, practice manager Campbell Watt said: “Jim was an incredibly important element of the Castle Douglas Medical Group and the wider health team for many years and although he had retired from the practice as a partner, he continued to love the job and his patients. He frequently returned to the practice as a locum GP.“Outwith the practice he was also an integral part of the local community with his involvement with the local church and the local rugby team.“We were saddened when he suddenly passed away in 2017. After time to grieve his loss, there was a strong feeling that we wanted a lasting memorial to our friend and colleague.“Discussions took place, and it was decided to create two benches, which we expect to be very well used by patients and staff alike.“The position of the bench at the rear of the building was where Jim could frequently be found at lunchtime and it seemed an entirely appropriate way to remember him.“Not to forget his patients which he dearly loved, a bench has also been placed at the entrance of the building for them to use.“We expect the dedications on the bench will cause those who knew him some very fond memories.”Robin Gilchrist was one of the representatives of Dalbeattie Men’s Shed who helped create the benches and were present on Friday. He said: “We were very enthusiastic about doing this. Quite a few of the local men knew of Dr Duck. I certainly did; he wasn’t my doctor, but he looked after a number of my relatives.“He was a big part of the community, definitely.”Many members of Dr Duck’s family attended the dedication event at Gardenhill including his daughter Jennie Duck, who spoke about her father.center_img Castle Douglas Doctor Jim Duck AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInWARM tributes were paid to Dr Jim Duck on Friday, as two special benches at Castle Douglas Primary Care Centre were dedicated in his memory.The gathering of family, friends and colleague for the dedication of two benches in the memory of Dr Jim Duck at Gardenhill on FridayFamily, friends and former colleagues gathered on a sunny February morning to remember the late, well-loved GP, whose sudden passing in 2017 had a major impact on the local community.Representatives of Dalbeattie Men’s Shed had been commissioned to create two picnic benches which will now sit in the grounds of Gardenhill and have plaques bearing the doctor’s name.last_img read more
