    Wow, I didn't know you had a copy of that magazine article Martin. That was in the Sunday Telegraph magazine in 1978 and it was that article that got me interested in hovercraft. Still got it in a scrapbook somewhere.

    To continue this 'all our yesterdays' nerdy theme, the guy on left in blue is moi, the guy in centre with classic bobble hat is dentist Phil Conron whose craft Phillibuster we are peering into. In the background on the left is the hoverclubs mk1 race control caravan. Oh and my red Austin A40 car is on the right behind Nigel, on the ground between Nigel and the car you can just see the yellow bag skirt of my 2nd craft Hoveranne 2. Dunno who the other folk are though! Date probably 1971.

    The b&w photo shows a production Cyclone made by Lindsay Gatwards Light Hovercraft Co, after Lindsay bought the design rights from Nigel. The turtle is a clue, its probably taken in the Turks and Cacaos Islands where Lindsay lived most of the time.......

    PS Noise level for Daffydol was highest at the front, at 90dba, as measured at Sherborne in '73.
