Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

I'll be away for a couple of weeks, and in the best clue of mode of travel, I present a flight vehicle. Hope my aircraft isn't this old!
This one is to be found in Mandeville, way, way down south in the South Island, where our group of bikers visited on one of our many trips. this little yellow beast was flown by a pilot of many talents. He, and his team were placed second in the Tiger Moth aerobatics in England. And most of our guys, and gals, had the chance to fly with him, for a couple of hours. For those more adventurous he spiralled and belly-upped, and looped-the-loop. The faces of my fellow bikers was a picture to be seen! They were over the moon....well they felt like they had flown over it!
Mandeville Airport is run by the Croydon Aviation Heritage Trust. A huge display hangar is a living reminder of the golden years of flying in the 1920s and 1930s. Most aircraft are maintained in an airworthy state and flown regularly, like this Tiger Moth. Mandeville has long played host to bi-planes, going right back to the early barnstorming days after the first World War.
Here you can view the restoration work being carried out by a dedicated group of men and woman.
Hopefully I'll have some decent photos of my adventures to show you all. Take care of each other.

    What a nice story, Sue, and a good link, too. The image is so effectively presented in these tones. (Have a nice sabbatical. I am working my way back.)
