For those of you who care , some photos of me flying.. First time I have flown for too long...
(Salisbury area in Southern England) England looked amazing from 4,000 feet yesterday tbh..
Touch and go, on the rather hilly runway, the highest in the UK
Cessna 152's fairly basic controls!
Awesome, really awesome. It must be an amazing feeling to be up so high and in control, everything looks so beautiful.Originally Posted by Langeveldt
Yeah really gets you in perspective, lucky to get such an amazing evening as well, you could literally sit back, let your hands go and the thing flew itself..Originally Posted by Sanz
Next time I fly in Wiltshire, I must take a photo of the Cerne Giant.. It's basically huge medi-evil p0rn carved onto the side of a hillside..
amazing pics mate, its great to have a hobby like that.
The 'Cerne Giant' just outside the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset is one of many giant hill figures cut into the underlying chalk of southern England. The cerne giant is believed to date from the second century AD and is generally considered to represent the God Helith. Many legends surround the 60 m high figure. Local legend says that a real giant was killed on the hill and that local people drew around the figure and marked him out on the hillside. For obvious reasons many legends concern the Cerne giant's fertility powers. One such legend has it that childless couples who made love on a certain part of the figure would soon be blessed with children. While young women wishing to keep their lovers faithful would walk around the hill figure three times. In recent years a fence has been erected around the figure in an attempt to lessen the number of people indulging in these practices!
Thank you Tarik..
Word on the street is, intense lovemaking on the hillside has caused increased rates of erosion and blowouts
