Titan Wednesday & (Flight news for Friday) ...

So the Titans came to visit ...

To carry the people home, only some only went as far as Gatwick.

If you were off to Bristol, it involved getting on the bus. Then another three hours or so for friends to get to Cornwall from there ...

Quite a nice looking aircraft, and some friendly pilots keen to wave to new friends at the Amaretto, as a Skiathos landing and take off, went into the pilots log book.

Titan arriving from Gatwick, and departing to Manchester ...



Titan arriving from Gatwick, and departing to Gatwick ...



Now the Gatwick was interesting. Trick of the light, or is 'Paddington Bear' in command of this Titan to LGW?


Some interesting conversations down at the amaretto. Usually, as someone is broadcasting to the UK, on their mobile phone. Of course, everyone wants to hear about how you are stuck here. Only no one is -  You are here on holiday, and for some bizarre reason, you are not on the beach, enjoying it.

The latest folks went home on the aluminium birds over there, and on the right day too - let's see what happens tomorrow. Or if the weather keeps you 'stuck' here another day ...

Lady said to me, 'Do you take photos of the planes'? 
'Yes time to time' I replied
'Can't see the point in it' she said
'Why are you out here then, with a mobile phone taking photos'?

There was a very long pause, and a classic failure to compute look ...

Its been very warm here, unseasonably so, and last night even the ciccadas were back in full voice. Probably completing their last night shift of the summer. This morning its a golden sunrise, however the weather is expected to change, we have rain coming over from Italy, which was very lively yesterday on the thunderstorm app.

Kalimera to the 'unknowns' who have been in touch via the comments the last few days.

The day is starting good, and there is a breeze. Time to take the hound out for a walk ...

  1. A friend of mine said to me yesterday "God you were lucky having your holiday cancelled Last
    week you could still be stranded". You can imagine my reply😤.
    Although I understand it may have been a worrying/nervous time for some, I know where I would have rather been⛱...
