Airlanders First Flight

Airlanders First Flight

Not the usual sort of video we produce but this thing is awesome. The worlds largest aircraft takes to the sky for its first flight. Capable of saying up in the air for more than two weeks at a time, or carrying 10 tonnes of load and it probably uses less fuel than my land rover.

The second of two civil defence bunkers we managed to find our way into. Its amazing what is down here and all pretty easy to see in this video as the electricity was still on in this bunker so we switched the lights on.

Bunker 1 (video)

A very rare opportunity to see inside a secret Soviet Civil Defence bunker situated beneath a key part of Kiev’s public transport network. In the event of a nuclear attack by Britain or the USA the dated equipment in these bunkers (which is still present and working) would be used to track civilian casualties and damage on the surface. Today the bunkers which are still owned by the government, officially form part of the countries civil defence planning, ironically they are now more likely to be used to protect Ukraine from Russia than from the West. Can you believe what has been left inside when they were mothballed?

This video takes you on a trip along the path of the Clove underground river in Kiev. We entered about 3km outside of the city centre and exited in the main shopping area, much to the surprise of the late night shoppers.

Under Kiev a mass of drains, underground rivers, metro tunnels, bunkers and cable shafts link the under ground world with the surface. This is a short video of our afternoon exploring some of them.

On the night of 5 June 1944, a force of 181 men landed silent wooden gliders within feet of ‘Pegasus Bridge’ in Normandy, France. This marked the beginning of ‘D Day’ and the allied invasion of occupied Europe.
