Blue sky thinking
Always been concerned about low flying aircraft over Scotland - and have myself been the subject of some observation because of my interest. This lockdown episode has been quite devastating on tourism and jobs through the clampdown on air travel. Been some massive layoffs with the big commercial passenger airlines. But they’ve got a cheek asking for bailouts when registered in the Protectorate of the Cumming Islands or wherever. O’Leary and Branson can go fek themselves !
However it is interesting to see who is flying around up there in the past few weeks. I was keeping my eyes open for the midday (our time) Beijing to Dublin flight every day. Or the 3.30 Singapore - Prestwick or the Brize Norton airbus sojourns up makes chem trails off Peterhead. Or indeed the increase in small private jets with no registered destination. It’s been great to have blue skies and imagine myself being that indigenous tribesman in the Amazon , not knowing anything about international aviation and waiting for a sign as the great silver bird passed over my longhouse. It’ll not be too long before the skies become filled once again with long white clouds - shame really.
