[Updated] Rjlaker's Airbourne - from Beachy Head

[Updated] Rjlaker's Airbourne - from Beachy Head

Postby rjlaker on Sun 14 Aug 2011, 6:40 pm

Hi all,
My season drew to an early close this weekend due to the forthcoming birth of our 1st child any day now! I went to Eastbourne for a couple of days - Friday with my wife, and on my own yesterday to beachy head. I wasn't expecting to see anything when i arrived it was thick fog - you couldn't see the other end of the car park, never mind the town! It lifted in time though and we got a good day. A lot of pilots played ball too and we got some lovely passes. On with the shots:

Tutor shots for me ( :shock: ), although Miss D and two Spitfire shots are also crackers.

All the best to you and your wife with the new arrival.

Cheers for the comments, guys. Timuss - If I'd have known that was you, I'd have come across and said hello! It was a bit of a struggle in that wind wasn't it!

That was me - think I was standing next to you... also battling the wind on the section of cliff before it got too steep!
