NEON RED LONDON EYE AT NIGHT SHOOTING WHITE BEAMS ACROSS THE RIVER (2011)
Each of the thirty two passenger pods or 'flight decks' shoot out a beam of white light at right angles to the London eye in this night photo from 2011. The Dual-purpose London eye is on red alert or DefCon 3 mode and can change from humble very popular visitor attraction to mission ready fighter state in a nano second. The dual use attraction/weapon changes only came into effect when Britain's defence systems became the main sponsor
