    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    It's a bit far from here, but it would be interesting to watch from nearby-ish!

    I like the animation on that site.

    I can see it from my upstairs window.

    Took this photo on the 2/7 looks like blokes getting ready for a big bang.

    ah - have they not told you it's going to happen if you are so close?

    To clarify - I am not organising a ride to this - just posted details for folk in vague area who might like to watch it.

    Have cycled very close to them in the past on a few rides Oxford to London.

    I can see them but I’m four miles away, I regularly ride past them though. Your post is the first I heard about them coming down on Sunday though, which is odd cos I know a bloke that works there and he never mentioned it when I saw him on Sunday.

    The Fragrant MrsP isn't very happy about it either, grew up with them looking at them from her back garden in Culham.

    One of the nice things about living in Buckinghamshire (and there are many) has been being able to go to a hill above Wendover, only 10 miles away, and see both Didcot and the radio mast at Beckley. Mrs W, on the other hand, is delighted to see Didcot power station disappear!
     
  13. What are the gliders going to do now ?
    I used to watch gliders using them to gain lift in the thermals from them .

    I found the original on YouTube...



    Excellent! ^_^

    PS But I wish people wouldn't put popups over the top of their videos. If they want to do it then they should put 20 seconds of blank video at the end to pop them up over...
