I say, Daddy, there's a frightfully nice man in the paddock. He's promised to take me all the way to Heaven and back, but I think there might be something wrong with his flying machine.

A lesson in retraction.

i) the aircraft's wheels are retracted. This is not good as it needs them to stand on.
ii) the horse's legs are retracted. This is good, otherwise it would be tripping on the obstacle.

As promised, its decision time.......


When judging, I think of my own caption for the photograph and pick one similar - in this case, no-one made the 1970's pilot training link of graduation from the jet provost to a Hunter! However, the closest was perhaps Buster with


Watch it Red 5, you've got a Mustang on your tail....

Canadair conversion of its B3008 to a water bomber hit its first snag when they discovered the pick up scoops were fitted backwards.
