AND FINALLY: Flybe drops a brick

A LEGO brick in truth

A Flybe plane has been brought to life in LEGO bricks at Southampton Airport.

Bright Bricks, the UK-based professional LEGO building company, in collaboration with Hampshire Cultural Trust’s Milestones Living History Museum and Southampton Airport, used over 15,000 bricks to build a model of Flybe’s iconic Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 aircraft in the airport’s passenger terminal, throughout the week.

The aircraft model was built at 1:20 scale, measuring approximately 1.8m long, with a wingspan of 1.4m.

The live build marks the introduction of Hampshire Cultural Trust’s latest exhibition, ‘Bricks in Motion: The history of transport in LEGO bricks’, which will take place between 25-26 February 25 at Milestones Museum, Basingstoke.   www.hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk
