Took a trip to the Mach loop yesterday and snagged a few photos….
That’s the climb up to where we had decided to stay for a decent vantage point. It took us 2 hours to drive to the place and then a further hour to climb up! By the time we had got there it was 11am but we hadn’t missed a plane yet
After a short wait the first plane to show up was a Hawk
After a bit we got a treat as a Hercules showed up! First time for me through the low level flying area!!!
Then it was a few more Hawks including the anniversary marked Hawk and was quite a nice time to take in the scenery and watch the fast jets
And then we got a lovely surprise – a Tonka GR4 showed up for a pass. Don’t get to see Tornado’s very often these days, this one a bit grubby but still good to see!
Another couple of Hawks and our day was done. Thoroughly enjoyable but I’m aching today!
Managed to pick up a Plugiator ASX last week… it’s basically a hardware plug in synth that is fitted into a CME keyboard to make a stand alone synth. It was a bargain at £60 plus £12.00 postage next day, especially after I managed to snag a used but good condition CME UF-50 for £25!
I plugged everything in and was able to connect via USB and register everything
easily and off we went. The sound is great nice and clean and great. Spent about 4 hours playing before I even noticed the time! So all in all very pleased with the purchase. I’ll be putting some demos up shortly! I have 4 plugins and will look to get the extra plugins shortly!!!
Went to see some steam trains on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway last Friday…
Really enjoyed it, it’s a short journey (under 6 miles) but a decent showing. We managed a fair few trips up and down but the weather was cold and the sun low so pics were difficult to take. A couple of the best processed ones are below and more are on my Flickr
Finally it was very pleasing to see the event really well attended. Good show all around! Will deffo go again when I get chance
Well we decided to go away for Valentines weekend – booked a great log cabin with a hot tub and also visited the Ribblehead Viaduct.
The log cabin was excellent, situated near Clitheroe I’d recommend it to anyone. Sleeps 4 and with an outdoor hot tub we really enjoyed the peace and quiet and stunning views across the valley towards Clitheroe. To see the cabin the link is HERE
On the Saturday we took a trip over to the Ribblehead Viaduct in Yorkshire. I’ve never been to see it before , but travelled over it. The light was nice and got a few decent pics!
Spent a night in Blackpool, but that was disappointing and then home via Sian’s brothers….excellent time would love to spend some time up there again soon!
I’ve started getting some stuff together for Petra in 2015. I’ve got the bits to sort out the heated front screen on the way, and then I’ve some great plans to help her look amazing! One thing I’m probably going to farm out is the rust on the rear arch, possibly a gearbox swap too
