Waiting at Standsted

My flight back to Berlin is delayed for about 1:30 hours. Waiting in Stansted Airport...doodling. Didn't know that this airport had a past.

During World War II Stansted Mountfitchet Airfield was used by the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Force as a bomber airfield and as a major maintenance depot. Although the official name was Stansted Mountfitchet, the base was known as simply Stansted in both written and spoken form.

Bought the new James Bond novel 'Devil May Care'. It has been written by Sebastian Faulks as Ian Fleming. I bet this will be rendered in a movie in 3 years time.

Gotta check out.. my purchased one hour time is up! See ya all later.
