Beware of Falling Bloggers

Kent Air Show tomorrow and I’m supposed to be taking a ride with the RAF Falcons parachute team. If you’re lucky they’ll push me out the back of the Hercules with them but without the parachute but I’ll take my camera and try and get some good shots if I get airborne. The last time I went skydiving, Port Lympne was still an airfield rather than a nature reserve complete with Lions.

Having witnessed a double fatality on Salisbury Plain in the 70s I am full of admiration for idiots who exit perfectly serviceable aircraft via parachutes. Good luck tomorrow: 1001, 1002, 1003 1004,....oh dear!
