A Picture Speaks

Woolwich Tribute - Photo Credit Jim Bennett
A picture speaks a thousand words and I really didn't want to add much further, to the powerful image taken yesterday lunchtime from a thousand feet over Woolwich.

I was called-out for the Daily Mail on what felt like the the first real day of summer weather, to help capture what was taking place outside the Woolwich barracks, as thousands of people came to pay their personal tribute to drummer Lee Rigby.

Orbiting on the very edge of the City Airport runway on the opposite side of the river, I would really like to thank the city controller for facilitating and clearing me into a very tight position, which would normally be very awkward to work and to Heathrow's watch manager, for approving the flight at such short notice.
