Stig and the BAC Mono

You wonder if BAC might have overshot that runway by a century or two. Parked up in downtown Rhyl, the Mono looks like a visitor from the future. Decades ago, Rhyl was a grand seaside resort; now it's a dilapidated mishmash of amusement arcades, pound shops and gangs of marauding seagulls. Against this dingy backdrop, the Mono looks otherworldly, extra-terrestrial: a design-school concept made reality.
