I eagerly await your photos gaz, and XPL's. BTW are you going to include any pics of the wild flowers that you are obviously so into .. :-o

I got there late (again) as I had to take Luca (my grandson) to his Nursery as his Mum's Astra failed again. Ha! Who said Multipla's were unreliable? Well OK: just about everyone but mine is still hanging on in there..

I have a few from today which wasn't really about aircraft photography but more about male bonding.. Or it would have been if we could only have shut XPL up for a few seconds!! :p To be honest he has some interesting stories to tell and buys the drinks :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

In no particular order:-

Gosh what a motley crew - Bubbles looks grumpy - XP looks like he's got a balloon stuck up his shirt.

As for the one on the end he looks like he's been forced to drive a Multipla :)) =))

Ian DOES walk around with a look of utter dejection on his face that can only come from a man who drives a mulitpla

Belgium was created so England and Germany could settle their differences, and their claim to fame is statue of a boy pissing. I rest my case, M'lud.

And it smells, don't forget that!

Seriously, we took a coach trip to Amsterdam, stopped somewhere in Belgium for fuel. It stank! Stopped a bit later because someone was feeling a bit travel sick, got out for a walk, it still stank!

Conclusion: Belgium smells bad!
