For the last 6 months I have been parked within locked gates of a Joinery factory helping a friend out with his Company. Not much to post about that.I had a bit of a run in with an industrial saw 3 weeks before I was due to leave and my thumb was out of action for quite some time. It is still pretty painful now and again.. I am leaving it until the nail grows out and if I am still in any pain I will consult a doctor.
After that I was supposed to go to my Mums to help her when she came out of hospital. However her first visit was cancelled as they were missing some specialist equipment. I decided to go to my favourite CL at Louth.
Here is a quick video look at the site. (click on the youtube logo at the bottom right corner to view it in higher resolution. I have posted them at full 1080p)
Mother then went into hospital for what I thought would only be 5 days. We are now onto day 17.. However we don’t know when she will be out so I moved closer and stopped on a CL in Coningsby. This turned out to be a good move as the weather improved immediately and this brought out the Battle of Britain Memorial flight who were struggling to get in enough practice time before the display season. I was getting non stop displays from the BBMF, the Typhoons, the Tornados. I also saw a saber which I have never seen before and a couple of what I believe to be F15s did a fly by. Here are a couple of videos from my time at the CL.
And yes that is my van at the beginning.
Here are two more I took from the road just on the other side of the house.
I am now parked outside mothers house hoping that she will be out of hospital tomorrow. I will be pretty much stuck in Coningsby for the next 3 months so I won’t have much of interest to post I don’t think. However I am planning to go to the BBMF and have a mooch round the hanger. If I do I will see if I am allowed to take pictures and will post them if I can.
