      Braced for another set of redundancies at work. 3 managers gone with 2 or 3 more members of staff to follow. Luckily I'm not affected (yet),

        Good to know your not affected. Fingers and toes crossed it stays that way.

        The unfortunate bit is that they've put 3 small teams together to make a larger one of 9. By far the biggest team now so it's a case hoping the projected growth comes through otherwise there may be rationalisation of our team.

      So the US has produced a fighter that no manufacturer knows anything about but we have Pres. Trump praising it. It's the F-52 from COD.

        It's not a bad life travelling around the country taking photos. I can think of worse things to do! No aviation pickies to share with us today?

        Got 1st camera in 2007 and barely used it. Then 2010 got fed up being in all weekend and started going round local places. 2013 was the 'go round the country' moment. Seen some awesome places... ironically, not many aircraft ones but should be able to get some airshow shots uploaded

      Decided to have a 1 trip this holiday. Alas, it was more of a slip on a rug in my flat. Got friction burn on arm the coffee table I glanced

      so I remembered today that I'm on holiday next week. Swift trip to work done to get boxed off the stuff that was outstanding.

      Last 2 years, I've explored the UK but my brother's doing the world instead. Today he's off to Jordan.

        Isn't it dangerous there? Still, I admire him.

        It's one of the relatively few safe places in the Middle East and he's with a tour group that's had years of experience over there. Flight was 90 mins late leaving but arrived only 30 mins late.

      Today's the 40th anniversary of my 1st visit to MAN. Got false expectations of how busy it was as it was packed with diversions.

      So.. using my brother's patented "Streetview" test on determining trips, no longer off to Berlin in January but to Amsterdam instead

      Tale of the daytrip tape. 860+ miles on bus/train and 63 miles walked. On a scale of 1 to 10 on how tired I am, I think I'd say 13 or 14.

        A man after my own heart. I walk most days and do a 10-15 mile walk at least once a week, often more than once. I walk a minimum of four marathons every month of the year (spread over the month that is not a marathon in one go).

        I should have said a minimum of the equivalent of four marathons a month.

        I'm very impressed by that! The shortest walks were 2 lots of 5 miles which was Friday and Sunday, with London being on the Saturday. No point in exhausting myself before the big trip or the day before getting back to work.

        All fine. nothing noticeable extra security wise in the city centre apart from fencing down some of the roads down to the main tourist destinations. Got back home at around midnight

      3rd 4.45am departure from my flat for a daytrip. Not quite grasped the idea of having a relaxing week off.
