The picture I didn’t take....

Recommended Posts

Sometimes it is the picture you dont  take is the most memorable.

Robyn and I were taking a walk along a lake near Buttermere in the Lakes District.  It was like a hobbit trail, so green and quiet.

Than we hear what we thought was a bus going up the road....than it got louder.....and louder......than ( holy shit)....a jet fighter comes ripping over the lake on a slight bank, maybe 100 feet out and 60 feet above the water.

Way too fast to ever snap a shot.  

Read later that this area of Cumbria with all its valleys and lakes is a favorite training area for the RAF ( here is the picture I didn’t take from the article).

It’s called the Mach Loop. I’ve flown it a number of times in my civ sims. It’s a blast. I can only imagine what a blast it would be for a real pilot.

I am not a hobbit (well armed, or not) though some might say so...
