    Phew.... i saw the thread title and thought you'd had some bad news from the doctor
     
  6. The BoB flight have gone over the top of my mansion a couple of times in the last month or so and it made me want to walk as if I had no kneecaps, smoke a pipe while wearing an RAF No1 dress jacket and a cream Arran jumper, call all my friends Binky, and rename my dog to "ethnic minority" (Yes I know that was Guy Gibson, but I was on a roll)
     
  7. last night , two spits were chasing tails over the Solent.

    Absolutely glorious sight infront of an orange sunset.





    (completely lost on most pompey chavs tho)

    I could here the engines over portsmouth at 19.35 but I couldn't see them.

    One cannot beat the sound of a large Rolls piston thingy popping as it throttles back.

    I'm nowhere near Hartlepool - or Battle. Must admit the sound of a Spit flying by has to be one of the sexiest sounds around - pisses over F1 !
