It was a really nice day last week, so I took a chance and went down to Crosby beach, Merseyside to have a routine fly around.
By pure fluke the Royal Navy decided to sail its new aircraft carrier the HMS Prince of Wales out of Liverpool for sea trials…it was toooo good an opportunity to miss! I hope you enjoy the video (no sound).
well done in not getting shot down !!! Looks like a ghost ship. Well captured tho
That tug really is losing the game of tug-of-war!
… however, this does gain you the Coastal Flyer Badge on your profile!
Looking again its funny how optical illusions work - it looks seriously shallow water when you look at the foreground wave patterns. Now Im wondering what happens to the Captain if he runs aground on a sand-bar ?? lol
As a side note, id give your right arm for 5 minutes on that gun fully loaded - oh yesssssss
To be honest, I was slightly worried about possible interference from radar etc…I had an automated Coast Guard station on one side of me, with radar and can only guess what the PoW has!
As I mentioned, the whole thing was pure fluke but well worth it.
Thanks for the kind words.
