First post, although I've been lingering for a month or so... I now realise I should post in the introductions thread too so I'll do that next. Just got back into this after a 7 year gap. I found your blog separately to this, digidude while looking up FS1 info and stories. Good work!
Anyway.. I've been following the Bristol wind tunnel news closely since its been back in the news this year.. I received this from South Glos council a couple of days ago:

They are advertising for a general manager who will work at Milton Keynes first, then transfer to Bristol in Q4 2018.
They also mention a tunnel near Birmingham that is in planning by an independent company with a Sky Venture tunnel.
