James Bond Exhibit Takes Flight
On January 17, the National Motor Museum of Britain will present Bond in Motion, comprising fifty of the most exotic vehicles featured in the films of Agent 007, James Bond. Already confirmed are the Bede Acrostar flown in Octopussy, the Union Jack parachute hoisted by the villain Gustav Graves, and the immense SkyFleet S570 based on a Boeing 747. Before your visit, read the reaction of real pilots to fantasy Bond aircraft in Live and Let Fly, such as the autogyro "Little Nellie" seen above armed to the teeth while actor Sean Connery grits his own.
