Some lovely machines in. Images are excellent.
Had to laugh at Graeme's comment on this Reg.

How did you managed to get so close?

Nice shots! :ok:
Old 'Bravo' (G-BRVO) has been running in and out of Ascot for well over 20 years now!
If TET is reading .. I have this morning joined in the frenzy of expectation surrounding this Aussie filly by placing an online wager on your 'Black Caviar' for this afternoon's Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
If she loses 'mate' then when I'm next Down Under I'm going to hit you up for a compensational drink! ;)

Us Aussies believe that Black Caviar is unbeatable. In about 7 hours we will all know.
And I don't care for horse racing ! But a story like that has the whole country watching.
Good luck on the bet.

Daughter is off to the Birdcage today, to watch Black Caviar make or break: but Dad's not around to fly into the races as we used to do at the Melbourne Cup ;)
How many helicopter movements are there at Ascot on the Saturday?
23rd Jun 2012, 12:23
The movements have been a little disappointing this year:
Tue 120 Wed 66 Thu 148 Fri 112 Sat (planned) 46. Thursday was affected by poor weather in the morning meaning we lost several of light single movements.
