Bloodhound car to go on display for first time

Imaging by curventa
The complete full scale 1000mph Bloodhound car will go on display for the first time at this year's Farnborough Air Show from July 19-25.

Project leader, Richard Noble, said that displaying the vehicle was a response to the need for students to take an interest in engineering.

"The aerospace industry is critical to our country and they are aware that 60% of the skilled workforce will be lost to retirement in 20 years, Noble explained. "So there is a crash effort to encourage the school kids and the students to take an interest in the industry. Well Bloodhound is halfway between a car and a missile so why not use it to bring in the target audience?"

A 6000ft2 pavilion in the middle of the Farnborough Air Show has been reserved and Noble encouraged the public to support the project.

"Please make a point of coming to Farnborough on the Futures or public days and come and see Bloodhound and bring your children and grandchildren – it's the first time any of us will see the whole car full scale. Of course, it's essential we can show that Bloodhound delivers the goods – that there is real schools interest in the programme. This is our chance."
