Re: Flying Kiss

Well that's different, and not something you'd see in Peckham. 😊

Re: Flying Kiss

I'd want an ejector seat and parachute before going on that.

Re: Flying Kiss

I'm not great with hights so I'd pass on that one.

Although I do like using my digital SLR, and if I had the nerve (I don't) I bet you could get some good photos from that!

Re: Flying Kiss

@Alex  I have the same problem with heights, I say to myself if you want the shot you're going to have to go up there. It works, sometimes....

@Champnet 

It must be one of those million year old primeval fears many inherit - the same with the fear of flying when brain refuses to accept the logic of flying at 30,000 feet. It just makes no sense.

Mind you, some see no problem at driving like a bat out of hell down the high street. 

Heights, planes, roofs and ladders don't worry me that much but what you would never get me up in even at the point of gun is a hot air balloon.

Re: Flying Kiss

Strange, I have no problems with planes, I’ll go for the window seat every time....

Re: Flying Kiss

I just did a quick double take on what you'd typed @Champnet to make sure it wasn't 'widow seat'.  Cheesy

The last time I had a window seat was on a short flight to Guernsey. The seat I was in meant I looked out the window at a whirling propeller a few feet away. I wasn't so keen on that window seat.

Re: Flying Kiss

A whirling propeller is good, it's when it stops whirling you need to worry.  I quite like seeing the minute adjustments made to the flaps in order to keep the aircraft steady.

Same here, window seat every time. You get slightly more room with no risk of getting your feet slammed if you have an aisle seat. On one flight, being near the wing, I had a grandstand view of the inside of the wing (lots of empty space there) as the speed brakes deployed. Do like to see the flaps operating and more importantly, the wheels going down.

 

But that Chinese thing. Ace, bring it on. Building it must have been quite something as well.

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?
