Fish Heads?


The steel bird scrappage business continues unabated at Kemble Airfield. Today I took this photo as we sped by in our car of some of the cockpits. I was not quick enough with the camera, but there are about five forlorn cockpits stacked up - they remind me of chopped off fish heads!
We also noticed another cargo type jumbo has arrived and has joined three others waiting for their final destination and disintegration.
We might be having a noisy weekend. A "bluegrass" music festival is being held on the airfield - I hope we sufficiently far enough away not to hear too much of this music at night. But, in fact, I would rather listen to "bluegrass" than "rock"!!

It is always sad to see aircraft being dismantled and it must be quite noisy too. But at least they aren't flying old planes that might develop faults mid air.
They do look like fish heads though!

Hope you don't hear the *rock* Put you ear plugs in!

Bluegrass music. Instrumental Bluegrass is great -- banjos, mandolins, fiddles -- as long as they don't sing. That high pitched "wailin'" sound that seems mandatory for most bluegrass drives me nuts.

Bluegrass is a new one for me. Must look that one up.

Love the photo of the forlorn aircraft.
