Shall I take the big camera on this quick evening walk? Nah – I must have hundreds of pictures of sunsets across Port Meadow. So it was that I had only an old iPhone on me when this scene appeared before me:
If I had had the Nikon, I would have narrowed in on the plane and missed the broader view. The iPhone won’t give the same detail, but it does pretty well considering that being a camera is but one of its functions (and it is not one of the latest models).
One of David Cameron’s many mistakes was to run down defence spending, something we will live to regret (if we are lucky). Perhaps George Osborne’s chums didn’t make enough money out of defence. We go to Port Meadow to see all sorts of rare flying things, generally avian. Here we capture the sight of one of the last RAF planes in the wild.
