What you see above is the world's longest flying machine, The HAV. The futuristic-looking airship has just been unveiled at Britain's biggest aircraft hangar. It's 92 metres long - that's the length of the football pitch at Wembley Stadium. It cost £60m to build. Somewhat unexpectedly one of its investors is Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson. "The airship has always been with us, it's just been waiting for the technology to catch up," he told the BBC. Frankly, it looks crazy. Apparently you can land this new aircraft by remote control and on water.
The Weather Girls are back in the top 40 once again, some 32 years after 'It's Raining Men' first entered the charts (they splashed in at No.31 on Sunday, pop pickers). The camp anthem was a worldwide smash back in 1982, and also a post-Spice Girls No.1 for Geri Halliwell in 2001. Now Martha Wash – the surviving member of the duo – is enjoying chart success all over again.

The legendary All Tomorrow’s Parties Weekender is drawing to a close, and Sunday will be the last party for the music event that changed festivals forever. Boy, what fun we had. ATP - the acronym it became better known by - was set up in 1999 by Australian Barry Hogan, but there was something very British about it at first, thanks in part to its location at the Butlins holiday camp in Camber Sands.
'Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium' 'The first live music film in 4K', goes the big sell, and the mind boggles. 4K?!? What sort of Terminator–style 28th Century technology is that? Will we be wrestled to the ground at the cinema's doors and surgically implanted with new hyperlinked electronic eyeballs that allow us to literally climb inside Matt Bellamy's head during 'Uprising', play the 'Knights Of Cydonia' riff and experience his real-life sensations of Freddie-aping rock star euphoria?
