Olympic rings have been put up on the new control tower at Birmingham airport, link here:

In other 'sky' related news, the heavy showers and convective conditions of the past week have produced a handful of funnel clouds and the odd tornado: including one in Rugby, Warwickshire:

A good website for tracking storms (although tornadic weather cells do not necesasarily produce lightning) is Bliztortung, a lightning detection network:
