    1. Yes it is.

    3. Never needed to. Over the years of driving on narrow roads, there’s been many a time when I’ve had to reverse someone’s car, (and wobble box/trailer....), motor-home, van, or horse box out of the way because they’ve panicked at the sight of my lorry and looked likely to stick it in a ditch. Which has happened on a few occasions and has necessitated my dragging them back out onto the tarmac.

    As I’ve said before, motorway maggots who “drive” for the likes of Eddie Stobart would crap themselves if they saw some of the things we do This was me turning round in a field, otherwise I’d have ended up on Sanna beach:



    And if I have to uncouple the trailer and turn it round with my crane, it won’t be the first or last time...

    You're right about the Tornado, but the Hawk is only 9 years old.

    The Hawk ZK031 was first flight 13/10/2009
    The Tornado GR4 is either:
    ZA607 / EB-X: first flight 10/05/1982 or
    ZA585 / 054: first flight 09/11/1981

    I can't tell which one it was (there was a group of 2) from the belly shot without going through all the other shots as it rolled over.
    Proud to be a boring health and softy crap following sissie!

    Meet Frank

    Everybody, I would like to introduce you to Frank.

    Shortly after taking this image, Frank stole my lunch right out of my pocket while his wife distracted me... Not cool, bro.

    As we are admiring the low flying exploits of the Mach loop, check this out from India:-

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-45833239

    I was particularly impressed with the height of the guy next to the wall, and the damage to the fuse, compared to the undercarriage position.


    The guy must have been wheels up, and still managed to take the top foot out of a six foot high wall: with a 737!!!!!

    There are four varieties in society: the lovers, the ambitious, observers and fools. The fools are the happiest.

    A bit like this one on top of Clouds Rest Yosemite, next seen trying to steal a piece of cheese that out massed him. At least he was indigenous.

    There are a lot of these living amongst the rocks on Fuertaventura. Some say they were brought by sailors, whether for food, pets or trade, no-one seems to agree on.
    They like peanuts in their shells and can hear one land on the rocks. They are happy to feed from your hand.
