just to let you know there is a facebook group for this site, where you can chat about things you have read seen or heard on the sheds and airships in general http://www.facebook.com/groups/235050767847/
have just put up my latest poem finished about half an hour ago, it is about the mooring mast site at cardington, how it stands there and not many people know of it or what it was for, and if you go there how hard it is to imagine the mast there with the vast bulk of the ship floating above your head, well i hope everyone likes it, going to put a new blog entry for every new poem describing what its all about, hope you like it.
as to my poems on airships, i do hope you like them, the site of an airship passing over head is a very poetic site indeed, it stirs the imagination i find, there are quite a few on their now, quite the body of work, the oldest one the ship was written around 2005, all the others have been written since october last year, the actual age of this site in fact, thats around 6 months, they keep comming and i hope you think they are getting better . the non airships poems are also growing, let me think what you think about them.
i ponder today, all this talk of the sheds at cardington being used as a sound stage for batman and take that using its space as a rehearsal area for its latest tour we have this year also had some airship activity, HAV have been flying the HAV3 model from the airfield still, they are in cranfield at the moment but they keep a foot in the door, i wish them the best of british and hope they come back to their rightful home one day, Cardington would not be the same without them, also had some other airship gods at the sheds lol, Goodyear have assembled 2 lightship models for a tour of Europe, spirit of safety 1 and 2, now well into their tour in Europe attracted a lot of interest, the sheds and a ship moored out the front of them is a fantastic site, long live the Cardington sheds.
I grew up in Cardington and the first ever airship i ever saw was a skyship 500 GBIHN, I was 4 and have been hooked ever since.
