  • Aerospace Hotels?

    How can you tell you’re in a hotel where most of the guests come from the aerospace industry? Well, in the case of the Premier Inn, a hotel close to Bristol’s (soon to be closed, alas) Filton airport you simply turn on the TV in the room and adjust the volume.


    Surrounded by companies like Airbus, GKN and Rolls-Royce, it seems someone has had a bit of fun with the TV displays in this hotel.


    Oh, and in case you don’t recognize the screen shots, the movie just happened to be Air America – the 1990 action-comedy film starring Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr as pilots of the CIA-financed Air America airline during the Vietnam war.
