Night Flight

You might not recognise this photo without a little help. It’s a rather different view of Dover castle. Thanet and Kent at night look very different and the lights of Southend, Boulogne and Calais seem almost close enough to touch. Trying to relate the lights to familiar landmarks can be quite hard, so I have new respect for the people who do the traffic watch flights. I should add that the most dangerous part of any night flight is not landing the aircraft but driving home along Shottendane road on the way from Manston!
