2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series.
To mark the occasion, Beaulieu Motor Museum in Hampshire mounted an impressive exhibition of original vehicles and props. As well as iconic cars such as the Aston Martin DB5 and Lotus Esprit S1, other modes of transport for 007 were on shown as well. "Little Nellie", the rocket firing gyrocopter...the high flying Glastron speedboat...and the lightest jet aircraft in the world, the Acrostar BD-5J.
