Clear Blue Skies

Seething Airfield Museum
Earlier today, I was sitting over the controversial fracking exploration site at the village of Balcombe, just South of Gatwick airport. Certainly a busy site and you should be able to see the photos on the Mail Online and the Daily Mail tomorrow.

Yesterday, I was working out of Seething Airfield in Norfolk, the former home of the USAF 448th Bomb Group during WWII. It's a charming and tremendously hospitable place and if you ever get up there, the museum is an absolute must, with some fascinating memorabilia and exhibits.

One old chap was telling me that when he was 12-years-old, he watched 2,000 bombers fly overhead to bomb the Germans as the weather finally cleared at the Battle of the Bulge at Christmas 1944.

The atmosphere has been very clear over the last few days and it's been a good time to take aerial photos as I fly to and from different jobs across the country.

As you can see, the Shard building in London is visible for many miles, almost as far as Gatwick and so maybe, I will leave you with the photos and think of something else to write later in the week.
