Lovely stuff, Martyn! I'm looking at this, and a dim and distant bulb in my head is saying "Fairey Battle"? I'm not at all sure about that, but it's amazing what can come floating up from the past isn't it? I can't have had a single thought about the Fairey Battle for at least 50 years - whether this is one or not.

Very nice Martyn!  I knew there was a Boston, UK.  :lol:  Never made it that far when I was there.

 

Hey, could you give me the lat/long of those towers, are they lights on them?  They look cool and I'd like to go there in the sim.

 

Cheers!

Nice.. Love those industrial shots. The East coast of Yorkshire has a lot if industry, particularly if you run north from Hull to Newcastle.. I remember when Wilton ICI covered miles of the coastline.. Teecee.

This is the Boulton Paul Defiant Andy, a lot more successful than the poor old Battle. It's main downfall was the absence of forward firing guns which was soon exploited by the Luftwaffe pilots. Still it was a handy night fighter.

Thank you Jack, went to Boston years ago, could not believe how flat the land is around there.

You will find the industry at Immingham 53 37N : 0 11 W.

My brother worked at one of the plants in the early 70s amazing to see the industry there as we had nothing like it in Bournemouth.

I usually make the trip north up the old A1 to Darlington, and then run for the coast at Newcastle, and down to somewhere around Filey or Scarborough and inland to York or Leeds.. nice trip to make in the early dusk.. Teecee.

Thanks Brad, lucky I did not start from Cottismore or they would have told me to go to Hull!

Some very familiar names Teecee, places I have visited in the past on holidays and Newcastle once for the football.

Sounds like a interesting trip, I will have to find a nice sunny day and take a squiz.

 

Cheers Gents for your comments and suggestions.

I live in Hull and was looking forward to looking at these.  Are these links no longer clickable?

Welcome to the forums Sheridan, here is a flight I did recently that you can see.
