Google Chocks Away!

I’ve just been flying around the English Lake District.

Not in reality, sadly, but using a cool new flight simulator which is hidden in the latest version of Google Earth. It leaves something to be desired in terms of the realism of the flight controls, but it’s not bad, and I don’t know of any others that will let me fly over Catbells, across Derwent Water and up over Ashness Bridge.

I crashed somewhere near Watendlath. Mind you, if you have to come to a sticky end, I can’t think of a nicer place to do it…
