H.M.S. Queen Elizabeth in Rosyth docks as I drove past on the Forth Bridge.

They are building a new bridge next door - will that be the fifth bridge?  ;)

Gruiniard island (where we tested Anthrax.)

A couple of Buzzards (but no eagles)

A couple of dozen Red deer stags by the side of the road (don't see too many of those in Southampton or Doncaster!)

Going to see if I can see the otter that lives at the bottom of the garden tomorrow.

Five minutes ago I became aware of a familiar throbbing in the air, and sure enough a Chinook has just passed about three miles away on it's way SW following the M3 motorway - heard but not seen - it's dark out there.

I top your Hunter in pieces with two complete Hunters, one kit form Hunter T7, four Delphin stars, a hat full of yaks, two jet streams, a Dornier 27, loads of puddle jumpers and a Gannet!

Keep smiling they are all still out there....

Last week I listed some of the aircraft in the hangar I'm working in at the moment.

Today a couple of the aircraft down near the back needed to be extracted so we spent the first part of the morning moving twenty or so planes about (the guy who owns the business is ex Fleet Air Arm and has a slightly different view about how to pack a hangar.)

In amongst all the other stuff we moved was one of these things

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutan_VariEze

First time I've ever seen one in the flesh.

Oh and the list of what we moved: 2 Cessna 150, a Tomahawk, A Grob, A Pembroke, A Dornier 27, the Rutan, 2 Yaks, A Jet provost 5, A jet Provost 3, 2 PA 28 a Seneca, 2 Delfin trainers and some other puddle jumper type things.

Never a dull day...
