Forgot to mention ...on the bench that you can see in my photo there was a Christmas wreath tied to the arm.

Whilst I was sat there a young lady appeared to remove the wreath after 12 days of Xmas..she was very upset as it was a wreath to her dad who jumped off the Bridge a few years ago..

I sat and did my best to comfort her as she cried her eyes out !!!!

So sad.

Kev, yes, very sad but perhaps good that you were there to console her?
Dad and I did a number of trips round Yorkshire whilst my parents lived in the East Rding during the 70s. If you have any photos of Spurn Point, Fylingdales, Coxwold, Thixendale etc I might be able to match them again more than 40 years apart!

Was born close to Humber bridge location in Cottingham. Remember them pouring concrete 24/7 to build the 510 foot high towers.

Proud moment some ten years later following obtaining my PPL, flying my father between them just months before he died.

Tut Tut Richard, I wonder how many Rules of the Air you broke doing that?

I'll have to get my Pratt Air Law book out to revise.

Sorry, I mean the Air Law book written by Jeremy Pratt

Twice across my lawn/ drive to try out my new knee, seems OK. Two weeks more to get the all clear from the doc.
