Camera Angle

New Archaeological Site at Canterbury
I promised readers a photo of the large new Iron or Bronze Age archaeological site in front of the University of Kent at Canterbury and its huge as you can see from the photo at the side.

I've taken quite a few so will give Kent Archaeology a call this week and ask if they would like some.

Today, I've been filming with the BBC's One Show since breakfast time and I'm sunburned and shattered. It never ceases to amaze me how long it can take to deliver exactly what the producer wants, when and where. With aircraft involved, that can prove a bit of a challenge at the best of times.

The results of today's little exercise, I'm told, should appear around September time.

Natalie Loves Alex

"Natalie Loves Alex," the flying message at St Giles Church at Kingston in Kent this afternoon for an Airads flypast.

Most surprising of all is that the storms forecast for mid-afternoon did not appear and so a very lucky day for the happy couple in hot sunshine.

Tolpuddle Rally 2013

Community Banner
Just a couple of photos from the Tolpuddle Martyrs Rally this afternoon in deepest tropical Dorset.

The South-west is still basking in Mediterranean-like heat as you might notice but the weather changes past Ashford to a much cooler climate indeed.

Listening to the radio traffic, I gathered that a light aircraft has crashed in the English channel some fifteen miles from Dungeness, with no sign of any survivors at present. At the moment it remains a mystery and I can only hope the Coastguard searchers from France and RAF Wattisham, find something in the next three hours as both daylight and hope fade.

More news later I hope but here's a passing photo of HMS Victory.

Never a dull moment this summer for Airads and with the BBC's One Show asking us to do another little job next weekend.

Brighton's Big Wheel

Lots happening today in blazing sunshine for a change. A birthday in Brighton and a marriage proposal in Essex as Airads worked two different coastlines.

Here's a photo of Brighton's Big Wheel, caught in passing this afternoon with a Happiest 50th Birthday banner.. The beach was packed.
