I know of the Famous Five and the Secret Seven but I don't believe that Enid ever got round to an eight. The Enchanting Eight, the Eager Eight? No matter. We Aeronauts, from Oxford, are a real life eight piece ensemble who's back story sounds as though it could have been crafted as a latter day wheeze full of adventure, youthful exuberance and plenty of Ginger beer! It's the stuff of future folklore.........although my I-Pod tells me it's not folk, it's Country. (It's wrong)
