Hi all 😃 My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Tina: Taking Flight.
Originally my post was going to be titled “Floating not Flying” & feature this pair of mallards having an early morning paddle on the Forth & Clyde Canal.
However, on my way back from the canal, I passed by Cumbernauld Airport where a trainee helicopter pilot was being put through their paces; & that is now my post.
There were quite a few seagulls enjoying the sunny morning!
…and finally, what better accompaniment than Pink Floyd 🤘

Great series and great music!
Thanks, Leya 😊
Great photo series, great music video Jez.
Thanks, John 😊
Love the birds
Wonderful, Jez! Thank you for showing us the helicopter series.
Thanks, Amy 😊
Great action and a fab song Jez 🙂 🙂
It was almost “Learn to Fly” by the Foos, but I’ve used that recently 🤘
What great timing you had to catch the helicopter training session Jez. I’ve never seen a contraption like that heli on a pole! Hard to believe it could support the weight on a single pole! From your images it looks like the student pilot still has some work to do LOL.
😂 Thanks, Tina 😊
