A check for change since 2012 via Google Earth, oh dear. This base deals with RAF transport, has been expanded.
Image Google, new T&C imply they want usage, is advertising. Use date facility to find this image and others. Needs proper GE software.
Area to right is huge.
Moi? Had an appointment at hospital in Oxford at 07:45 (am), don’t ask. Blue sky all over, drive there was okay in heavy commuting traffic. Nice lady asked one of her registrar’s to re-stitch my feeding tube. Man appears with needle and thread. Anaesthetic? Ho ho. 🙂
Done this early, ward rounds start at 8am. I’ve been in the ward twice so I know it all. Nice touch was no parking charge, less than an hour from start of paying.
Drive back home was okay, watch outside thermometer climb, 22C @ 9am, there after stay inside. Probably peaked 31C.
Wind was significant, I’m not that far from Brize Norton (Oxfordshire).
