Well, it's famous to those of us in Maryland. Here I am today at Sandy Point State Park with the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in the background.

Thanks Kelly for taking the picture!

Not so much a famous landmark, but nevertheless interesting. In the background is Barbury Castle, one of several Iron Age forts in Wiltshire, UK. In this year of anniversaries I thought it was a good idea to pick a landmark that happens to be half way between Bristol and Portsmouth, perhaps giving some people who are visiting us later in the year some tourism ideas ;) But is also seemed an appropriate time, as Rev is celebrating 20 years, to take one of the newest kites in the range against a landmark that is about 2800 years old!

I am not sure why the lady on the left was offering my kite a cup of tea :confused!:

And then I got out a proper kite! It must be rather confusing as it appears to show a beautiful blue sky in England - but folks it's true! We had a wonderful day today with wall to wall sunshine. The temperature even reached 80 degrees [cough!].

Now that's what I call slack line work. :kid_content:

Actually, I had come to Barbury because I had been having trouble learning to fly a circle backwards. I though it would help if I had a go a Barbury because it appears it is on a Lay-line that runs from the white horse at Uffingham down to Stonehenge. So I set up the red devil, made a silent but solemn incantation to the great wizard (Lord Voltamort Bladderbust otherwise known as Roy Wood), and had a go. And spookily enough, guess what! I still couldn't do it! The final pic below is the 'new trick' that resulted from my efforts. A trick that I might say even Mr B cannot manage, and which I like to call the lay-line, wing-wrap, barrel-roll.

Funny thing that, went all that way and flew there, but didn't see the castle at all! :lol:

Ok, we need the San Fransisco Bay Bridge now. We have the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and the Sunshine Skyway; let's get some more.

I don't think this would be labeled as a "famous landmark" but what's inside is sure something to be seen.

Photo taken at the last (I think) kite festival held at the U.S. Air Force Museum (Dayton, OH), October 13, 2002.

That's my Blast, but I do not know who was flying the Rev 1 in front of the stands.

Now, what would really be sweet is a Rev over Stonehenge.

Stonehenge would be cool, shame you pretty much cant get near to it now. You are kept well away from the stones, cant even touch them.

At least that is the way it was last time I was there.

I live about 4 miles away from stonehenge. I did check out if there was any sensible flying area which overlooked it, because as Baloo says you cannot now get anywhere near the stones. I couldn't find anything - you would need to trespass on private fields. Finding a site is made even more challenging by the close proximity of the A303, a very busy major road, and a number of airfields near to the henge.

You could get the view of the stones behind but they would be far away across a field (behind another fence).
If you go past the car park (on the right) and turn off the main road on the next left (some ppl park for free on this dirt track)!
obviously this shot would depend on the wind direction and you'd have to fly over a fence and have a long lens.
do able but not ideal.

If the weather had been good when we went to the Weymouth kite fest we would
have attempted a very naughty pic of a rev over The Giant (Man) on the chalk hill at Cerne Abbas :blush: :lol:

*Obviously* the rev would be covering his 'modesty'!

You would need a damn great rev to do that - a blast at least I would have thought!

Alternatively you could practice your hover and get that money shot of a 1.5 doing a wing tip stand right on the end!

Yes !

That was a bit toooo rude Sailor (you're obsessed) :blue_blush:

Shame the Homer Simpson chalk character isn't still beside The Giant....
would have been fun to fly over the doughnut ;)

Modesty? He’s been there naked on that hill side for year’s. I think he’s way past modesty by now, and anyway if memory serves me right, he’s rather well endowed, I shouldn’t think “modesty” is even in his vocabulary.
