    No not at all, they don't operate a fracture railway system in Norway like the UK, hence it works !

    I just love forest walks. I can almost smell the pine needles looking at this picture. It was a great shot Mr Finkle

    The Fjords look spectacular, you must have had a great time.
  • Gordale Scar, Yorkshire Dales near Malham
    Will have to see about trying to get round there. Looking at the buses, it seems something like 5 hours or so allowing for walking to/from Malham

Flight from Liverpool to Bergen with Wideroe
  • 447
  • 5
I decided to try a weekend in Bergen soon after this new route was announced so thought a pre Christmas visit would be ideal. Left on 7 Dec the flight is due to depart at 08.05 at present but in the new year it will be around 10.00. Checked in bag and made way through security. There was quite a number of people going for a Wizz flight at same time but was still screen fast. The flight was parked remotely so we were bussed. I would say the flight was over a quarter full. Smooth flight and plane is still very smart inside being very new. Flying time 1.30h. Free hot drink on board...

Global Warming or Global Cooling?
  • 371
  • 4
What are your thoughts on climate change? For the last two decades at lest we have been spoon fed a global warming agenda, "the Earth is burning up", our "use of fossil fuels is causing Co2 to spiral out of control". More recently the IPCC lead by the United Nations released a report saying we have to take immediate action to save the planet from catastrophe. During the 90's I went along with this narrative. As a person who has always been interested in weather and the climate I have always followed the subject with much interest and like most people I went along with the idea that man...
Brexit

  • 201
Generally speaking I try not to get involved in political debate and discussions.However i would like to play devils advocate here. Did anyone else see the story in one of the National papers last week stating the reasons why most of the EU want the U.K. to stay in the Union. Strangely it was missed by the pro EU propaganda machine that is the BBC,as well as other sources. The reason,as if we didn’t know is purely down to the money we put in.They do not want to lose it,as admitted by Malta and the Czech Republic.Also no one ever tells what the implications are for the rest of the EU,how...
Wildlife at airports
  • 760
  • 14
As I'm interested in wildlife as well as aviation, I'm often looking out of aircraft windows when taxing to see what creatures might be about. Recently when I was watching aircraft at LPL doing the Kiev flights, I was aware how many birds were around me in the grass around the taxiway and shrubland surrounding. I saw Kestrels Blackcaps, Swallows and Whitethroat , but most exciting was quite a number Grey Partridge, a once common farmland bird which is now on the countries "red list" being in severe decline. They seem to have a little safe haven around Liverpool Airport, which was great to...

What the hell is Prince Phillip doing at the age of 98 driving a range rover. ;-(
oldendays wrote on a300boy's profile.
True, TCX has seen better days but their LBA offering was already on its arse so there's no excuse to have lost what little was left. At least Bill Savage secured a base from the then Airtours, and Britannia/Thomson. Now all lost. Meeson must be laughing. I really don't understand how Jet2 - a relative newcomer - seem to be able to get it right and the elder statesmen can only cut and run. Backhanders, maybe ?
oldendays wrote on a300boy's profile.
Is it just me, or has LBA achieved nothing since David Outlaws and his gang have been in charge ? Terminal improvements aside, which are a legacy of the previous management, the airport just keeps on losing business. If I was AMP, I would be putting the genial Geordie on notice just now.
Is anybody feeling christmassy yet ? Im not ;-( Maybe some mulled wine will help with proceedings ??
