Big Bird

In case you missed it, a very large Russian-built Antonov 124, big enough to swallow a couple of 747s, made a visit to Manston over the Christmas holiday. En-route to sunny Dubai it was collecting a super-size load of freight. Gold or Turkeys perhaps but more likely picking up stocking –fillers, such as Aston Martins’ for the start of next week’s Dubai Shopping Festival, which, if you are not familiar with it, is sort of like the Harrods’ sale, but scaled up to the size and extravagance of a small Gulf state and given the present weather, exactly where I would like to be today?
