This Sunday while everyone was standing around talking about it (as there was no wind) and enjoying the gormet lunch I had prepared (bangers and mash with gravy) as I was on duty, and the water authority who runs the resovoir was busy with the marathon, we has a visitor.

What no sails?!?!?

This landed on the lake, taxied round, pulled up the foreshore and stopped for a cup of tea.  The club was fascinated – even if it had broken the speed limit on landing!

The sea plane was home made and flies from Ravenglass every weekend visiting Scottish lochs, southern lakes, and now us!

The wings detach!

It’s wincy!

It’s a first – I’ve never seen anything like it and hopefully the water authorities didn’t see it and its fly past once it took off and headed for home!
