Sad to think that we won’t witness SRN4’s power again

NEWS COMMENT: If we must have police cuts we need to know exactly why

Have your say

When it comes to our greatest innovations and inventions, we still suffer from massive apathy in this country.

I reckon Concorde should still be operational and so should the car-carrying SRN4 hovercraft now at Lee-on-the-Solent.

The Hover Museum had record figures for its open weekend, but it was so sad to see the last two of these amazing giants lying dormant.

Designed to take 55 cars across the Channel at 50mph, surely they’re prime examples of our maritime history and should be saved by lottery money for all of us to enjoy and wonder at?

It’s sad to think we’ll never witness their awesome power and ability again.
