Always, always, another great tour Martyn!  Thank you.

 

PS: You HAVE to tell me the exact steps you use to know what's below you.  I plan on adding an old extra monitor I have lying around to my PC today and running what John recommended, Little Nav Map on it but I have absolutely no idea how to do this.  Never tried a second monitor, no idea how to set one up, and no idea how you use two monitors.

 

I really want to do what you do rather than just posting shots, I like how you tell what's below you.

Thank very much for your appreciative comments Jack:).

A busy day today but I will try and find time later to send you blow by blow instructions on how I know where I am flying.

Well Martyn  super set of shots has has made yourself happy and Jack with blue and yellow regards stewart

Thank you Stewart, very happy indeed when I found this paint for the Tiger Moth but not enough yellow to go inverted.:lol:

Just in case anyone else wants this paint read the instructions first as the installation is different from the norm.:huh:

In that case I would have painted a big "H" in my garden B)

 

This is how the "Schloss Biedenkopf" looks like out of my kitchen window :D

PS: I would never throw rocks at a tiger moth ;):P

That is an amazing view from your kitchen. Nothing like this of course in Oz.

What a coincidence too that I chose to fly around your neighbourhood.

One thing bothers me though. If you weren't throwing rocks at the Tiger Moth then you must have been throwing them at ME!:ph34r::o:lol:
