Incredible to see the Leyland logo on the front of vehicles still being built. When my dad worked at AEC they knew it by a rather rude name, the "Flying F...y".

I spend a great deal of my working life in the Middle and Far East where AshhokLeylands are very popular in both Bus and Commercial forms, the site i am working on at the moment has a fleet of around 25 buses for transporting labour, that are very basic looking but still boast the Leyland Badge.
I will try to get some photos when i return next week.

Leyland also lives in the form of Leyland Trucks Limited. But unfortunately all of its products say DAF on the front!
