After a faceplant in Castlefield.

‘I worry I won’t recognise you, but I’m really grateful for your kindness’

An anonymous note has been left paying tribute to the Good Samaritans of Manchester city centre. It appears someone took a nasty tumble on the cobbles by the canal towpath in Castlefield last week, suffering serious facial injuries. A number of people came to the rescue and got the victim into a taxi to hospital.

Drones & Barton Aerodrome…

Map of prohibited area. Not counting, of course, the regularly flown G-A aircraft that fly lower than their lowest allowed of 500′.

Doing your own research gives causes for aircraft accidents.

  1. Pilot error.
  2. Mechanical failure.
  3. Birds.

The one a couple of years ago was an airliner pilot spotting an unidentified, close by. He reported it was a drone (yeah, piloting an airliner at over 200/300mph). Not a bird. A drone. Normal sightings are now ‘drones’ by default. Before this hysteria, it was birds, which was normally correct. This time, however, it was a polythene bag. The sheeple just absorb whatever the media throw at them, as do our M.P.s, to take away our freedoms, bit by bit…
