“The Flying Merkel” has to be one of the greatest names ever given to a motorcycle manufacturer, in fact I can’t think of one better.
As a guy with solid British heritage I think it only fitting to mention the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this week, this is a post-WWII photograph of then Princess Elizabeth with her favourite corgi, sitting in what I think is a Rolls-Royce.
I’m going to need someone to explain, or try to explain, what the hell is going on in this picture. Click the image for the large size.
Some photographs just take your breath away.
Airships represent an alternative form of air transport that I secretly wish was far more commonplace. I’d happily spend 5 days cruising across the Atlantic on a luxurious cruise between London and New York and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
