    There was daily test runs up to last week.The pod was sent up and left there for an hour or so,then sent halfway and left to sit for an hour,it has not moved this week.It is still very much a building site with lots of paving and fancy concrete seating being installed.

    What a load of shite.:D

    "Architects David Marks and Julia Barfield said: "The team behind British Airways i360 has gone beyond the call of duty and created a new landmark they should all be proud of".

    "Built at the landward end of Brighton's historic West Pier, British Airways i360 is a modern day vertical pier which invites visitors to walk on air and gain a new perspective on the city, just as the West Pier invited Victorian society to walk on water.”

    A modern day vertical pier.:facepalm:
    Yeah without the bumper cars,ghost train,amusement arcade,candy floss etc,etc.

    I would imagine you won't be up there too long anyway.

    And free entry. And fresh sea air. And deckchairs. And everything that made a pier a pier.

    At 3pm today only a third of the Dildo was visible from the ground upwards from my view 15 metres away. I suppose as visitors will have pre booked and paid to go on it BA won't lose to much money on bad weather days.

  18. Walk on air, urgh, when you fly in a plane do you 'walk on air'? Of course not, you walk in the plane. You'd have thought British Airways of all people would understand how these things work.

    I'll buy you a ticket if you spend the entire duration of your travel singing (only) the chorus of 'Walking In The Air' from The Snowman.

    I have once 'walked' from Malaga to Heathrow. The joys of travelling with a three year old. Travelling to Mumbai with a three year old in December, would rather not walk that one...

    Cheers, but I won't enjoy it :confused:
    Fwiw, there was a chat about it on r4 early yesterday evening.
    I was speaking to a local rellie on phone recently who is up in arms over it and the waste of money :eek:

    Well there has been a lot of cuts to essential services,a lack of "affordable"housing and surgery closures due to lack of funding.People are also concerned with the precedent it will set for future planning applications.
    This has been suggested for Maderia drive.

    Brighton is not the cheapest of places and Hove is the upper end of the area, so no surprise there.
