Over many years I have been trying to find images of Bekonscot model village from the 1960s. Unlike today's Bekonscot which is set frozen in the era of Hercule Poirot and offers an escape from the modern world, the 1960s version used to get updated regularly to reflect the exciting world outside.
Sit back and visit "Heathwick" airport as it looked in 1960 and 1962.
First up, the BOAC Comet1 and the BEA Fairey Rotodyne in 1960.
Two years later, the VC10 had arrived. And in the corner three Vulcans sat on standby as they were to do for real in 1962.
