What better place of power to be than with jets shooting overhead?

Flying is from 3.00 pm to 5.00 pm and the watchers are out.

I wanted to leave this post until one zoomed overhead and try and describe it to you.   This is about the first flying day.  Now I’m a day behind so this will be a rolling post.

Cloudy so I heard it and it wasn’t creeping, it was storming!  A silver jet shot from the clouds at 300 feet,  rolled to show off its underside bristling with the fiddly stuff men love and was gone.

“Come back!” I shouted at an empty sky.  A flock of birds skimming into my garden changed its mind and flew next door.  Not only crazy neighbourhood but crazy people as well.  The silver flash hurtled past again in a series of rolls, fluid and fun and stunning to watch.  Strange ends to the wings, like triangles to the tips and a foglight on the front bearing down to the runway.  The sound hurtled after it.  Wow!

And that was the start.  I can’t hear myself think, it is constant.  I love it!
