First Flight from mark stockdale hughes on Vimeo.
Things seem to have suddenly become proper 21st Century. Even our local Publican has got a drone, and so has the Chairman of our Parish Council (and its not one of the counsellors!) - it's going mainstream and I'm being left hovering like a late adopter!
It reminded me of one of my childhood heroes from the erudite weekly publication we used to feast on in Gravesend in the 1950's:
Yes, General Jumbo in the Beano commanded an entire remote controlled army, navy and airforce from his wrist to fight wrong doers and n'eer do wells from 1953 to 1975 and was the envy of most boys my age. Alfie "Jumbo" Johnson remained 12 years old throughout and was supplied by the genius of Professor Carter (who one suspects may be now assisting the Police Yew Tree investigation)..
I wonder what the next childhood feature will be to become reality? I suppose we've already got Lord Snooty in the Cabinet and Bash Street Kids in several secondary schools.
