Bushed

So, I've decided to go after an instrument rating; more money, more exams and even more stress but perhaps I'll be able to fly something much bigger at the end of it all, rather than simple banner tugging, who knows? I've got to get through more navigation and maths work first.



I've spent several sweaty hours over the Reading festival today and I probably look as tired and bedraggled as the pilots in the photo.

Ironically, I saw a couple of Spitfires and two World War I fighters, a Nieuport and an SE5A in close formation this afternoon, a wonderful sight from a bygone age.
