All Aboard Sir David…

Yes – Boaty McBoatface previously topped the public vote – but The UK’s new polar research ship is to be named RRS Sir David Attenborough.

The decision to name the ship was taken by the government following a public call for ideas led by the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The search for a name attracted over 7,000 suggestions.

Exceeding All Expectations

Leicester City have won the Premier League title in one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.

Leicester started the campaign as 5,000-1 outsiders for the title – after almost being relegated last season – and have achieved one of the most admirable title wins there will ever be.

They had lost just three league games in what has been described as a “fairytale” and the “most unlikely triumph in the history of team sport”. Closest challengers Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and last year’s champions Chelsea, have all failed to match the Foxes’ consistency across the season.

Come [...]

The government is to hand over more than £1m to Central Manchester NHS Trust from its Libor fund – made up of penalties paid by banks that break financial rules – to fund the hospital’s new helipad.

LED helipad lights will cut through low visibility and always guide the aircraft to the heliport. With excellent illumination on the heliport you can be sure pilots will be able to locate the landing zone both comfortably and safely.

It’s Up In The Air…

Aviation warning lights….What are they actually used for? I can already sense you ready to ask….

Well, they are a key element for anybody involved with the aviation industry as they are used as a guide – or could I even say a marker – to warn pilots of any oncoming obstructions to their flight path. This clearly shows why the maintenance of aviation warning lights is monitored by very heavy legislation. This is done to make sure that regular reviews of the lights are made and to make absolutely sure that they are ALWAYS in operation!

After doing a little [...]
