Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

SHOREHAM AIR SHOW

Hi folks. Just got back from the Shoreham Air Show and much about which to tell you but I am going off to visit friends in Berlin for a few days so my Blog will have to wait until next weekend.

Got some super photos. Think I might even have managed to capture a few of the Blades (they are all ex Red Arrows and their display is similar but performed with 4 aircraft and at a lower level but it is spectacular - and little old me flew with them a couple of years ago - awesome) The most unusual highlight of the show was a Frenchman Christian Moullec who flies his microlight in formation with a flock of geese who think he is their Papa - amazing.  Read more about him and his conservation efforts  www.vol-avec-les-oies.com  

Just haven’t got time to load any photos now. So stay with me and I’ll fill you in next week and also with some thoughts about Berlin which I’ve never visited and probably never would apart from these kind English friends inviting me.


RED ARROWS

How terribly sad to hear of the death of the Red Arrow pilot - Jon Eggling. They’ve had quite a few accidents over the years but Thank God there have only been two fatalities. The first one was in the early 70’s. I was working at HTV in Bristol and a team had recently completed a documentary on the Reds who were based at Kemble and were horrified to learn of the fatal crash.

A Bientot, Jan

Not the best of photos of Christian with his geese but the best shots were against the sun.  They really do fly beautifully in formation
