Radio 2 informed me this morning that today is the anniversary of the Patent for hovercraft by Sir Christpher Cockerell so I thought I would recognise the event!

There was probably more specific info but I wasn't paying that much attention until I heard 'hovercraft'!!:)

Well heard! -apparently he submitted his first hovercraft patent application on 12 Dec 1955 so I guess thats the anniversary - the 56th?

He's old enough now for you to change the locks without being done for it.http://www.hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/icon10.pnghttp://www.hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/icon10.png
