It pains me to upload this but here's a 'witness photo' courtesy of My Little Samsung.  Looks like an oil painting!


The excavator which arrived the other day looks like a Daewoo, for those who were wondering.

Watched its departure from Tesco, outside which we had had to stop to rescue a worm from a puddle  :-\



Apron webcam just came back online in the last few minutes.  Hurrah!  It has been an awkward week without it to confirm visitors.

It was a VERY VERY important task according to Small Smudge, who was then nonplussed that the helicopter didn't wait for us to complete the mission.

Went to Dungannon apparently.  The helicopter, not the worm.

Manky weather today and the only thing I noticed flying today was resident Thruster G-CGFZ, up for a jaunt around 18:00.  Not much seems to keep FZ grounded.

Spare body & cheapo lens now on standby in the back room!



There has been a big fire smouldering all day on the Castlebawn brownfield, just NE of the airfield near Tesco.  Noticed a big heap of general detritus there the other day, liberally sprinkled with tyres.

Looks like it was started about 20:00 last night and really took hold after 22:00
