Statue for Doncasters Robin Hood airport

Posted in Airport News, Travel by Jeff on the March 8th, 2007

Doncasters Robin Hood airport has a new arrival in the form of a 10-foot-high bronze statue of the legendary Robin Hood. The unveiling was carried out by local actors Sean Bean and Brian Blessed who played the part of Lord Locksley in the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Although Sean Bean never played the roll of the man in tights, he was picked in a poll as the star that most people wanted to see play the character.

The public were not invited to the grand unvieling at Doncaster airport as there were concerns that there could be a risk if people turned up in large numbers.
