rain and red arrows

The misery and the joy of a British summer's afternoon on the slope

10 August 2014

splendid Saturday




We arrived to find Gary had camped out over night...or so we thought




turns out it was a couple of 'free love' exponents,
problem was- they were both blokes




Mark's new tranny, complete with 'broken knob' mode
which engages automatically after 1.25 hrs use





tossing off




good turnout




off to meet its new owner





beware, wing lurks in the grass....bite is fatal




meanwhile Ray tosses himself off




meanwhile Mark tosses off anyone he can





hmmm a new sighting device spotted on the slope.....





'There are two Banthas down there but I don't see any....wait
a second, they're Sand People alright. I can see one of them now'






David snatches back his camera fearing Pete has caught
a glimpse of his homegrown cosplay porno. 


 


meanwhile Bob lands short....




the impact of a forced landing throws
his 1/4 scale 'Duke' dolly from the cockpit




meanwhile Charlie's Schwing creams past with bits
missing from the wings




no more lame 'tossing off' gags
you'll be pleased to learn





Daves PSS beastie at low level with full size smoke trailed aeros behind
all in glorious 640 x 480 (just)

a classic Thurnham evening


A classic summer evening up on the mighty Thurnham.
All scepticism over wind direction is laid to rest when
(at about 5pm) and we are blessed with a decent sou'wester...



scalies at the ready....good 'clocking on / clocking off' air
space time share between us and the paragliders made
for a stress free evening




It's a 90s nostalgia fest.
Pre-launch, Eric inserts something into his bottom.
We're still trying ascertain exactly what is was,
and why he was putting it there.



even the Goodwind camera lens crap was able to make it for the evening



Ray spots a well used handkerchief and immediately sets off
on a full blown homophobic diatribe.




 combine harvester and ASH26

The farmer was good enough to kick off several monster thermals festooned with
so many gulls, it made life difficult keeping an eye on one's model.





ahhhhh! Life is good!!
