Me and Aircraft

Article text
Always been a fan of Aircraft, but it was my late Father in Law John Elcocks who lit a fire inside me during our annual visit to RIAT Airshows over several years. I now go to about 5 Airshows a year, but my real passion is to see the Aircraft in their real environment, to do this I go to Low Fly Area 7 (LFA 7) also known as the Mach Loop or Roundabout. Here by climbing up the mountainsides around the Cadair Idris area you can get to see the greatest pilots on the planet do their thing, we go in all weather and it is without doubt the most exhilerating sight you can see, a Fast Jet doing 500 nots at low level is awesome.
