Then there was the day I was arrested taking pictures and rode in a Land Rover with a pair of German Shepherds! Got a cup of tea and a beetroot sandwich out of that one! They trashed the film from my Brownie 128 - the box camera with a wire frame view finder. I think I was 11 or 12 years old and wearing short trousers and a beanie!. There is/was no fence on the peri-track at Scampton, just wide open oats-wheat-and- barley fields. Amazingly the Vulcans were carrying nukes! I had just changed the film and they never searched me for the one I had already removed from the Brownie. A super adventure to tell my pals at school - still have the B&W pics somewhere
I like my Vixens and have enjoyed experimenting with them. Looking forward to some serious flying this spring. Biggest challenge is the video making. I am sure we will see a meteor one day. For me, the V-bombers would all find a place in my hanger. I loved pulling my Vickers Valiant out on the slope and zipping back an forth. In those days (1970 something) the "slopers" were mainly polyhedral built-up wings etc. A fiber glass skinned foam wing was, and I quote many doubter, "Was never going to fly!" Now PSS is huge!
We can write all day about what we want - I wish there was "suggestion/demand" box instead of relying upon the whim of an employee in the far East.
I had five kids and they would never imagine biking the way we did. It was either stunt riding or "Dad I need to go to xxxxx".
P.S. I started a "Hang-nail" blog to help me/us not hijack these threads :-)
