No, unfortunately I'm not the pilot...or maybe that's fortunate from your perspective? I would have asked Carol from Facing 50 With Humour as she hold's a helicopter pilot's licence, but she's just got back to the UK from France and has caught her Hubby's cold, so I felt it would be too much of an imposition. I have, however, ensured we have a really handsome young pilot to escort us. He unfortunately declined to have his photograph taken, so you are free to imagine whoever you'd most like to have sitting at the controls, OK? But please don't get so wrapped up in your little fantasy that you forget to look out of the windows to admire the spectacular views you're about to see and, I don't mind adding, for which I've had to dig deep into my pockets to fund. So, please...hop on board and buckle up! Put on your headphones. I think it's best you sit back and enjoy the flight without my interjecting too often to point out sights. That way, you can focus on what interests you. Besides, it's too noisy trying to shout above the sound of the rotor and the pilot needs to have access to the radio to make his calls. Sure you're comfortable enough? Cameras at the ready? Right...we're OFF!Please click the Read more button below if you wish to continue this flight...

So sorry to have to rudely interrupt your flight, mid-air, but as I've selected just over 50 photographs from the 100 plus my husband took, and I can't upload all 50 in one go, I've of necessity had to save the balance to share with you next time...so, please, do continue to enjoy the rest of the flight and ensure you come back to see the rest of the pictures.
