Walk Around Matley 12

Have you got a good eye sight?

In the above picture you can see smoke coming from a factory chimney, just to the right is a church steple. In between those two points and slightly above are the landing lights at Manchester Internationaltaionl Airport... Now for how good are your eyes.... there's a plane coming in to land from the left... can you see it?

The plane is now above the smoke from the chimney and a little lower to the lights. I watched it land, as I have watched many others land and take off from this high ground. When Concord was flying it was a sight to behold as it came in... and taking off was sight and sound not to be missed. I think the airport is about 6 miles maybe less from here but on certain days plane engines can be heard roaring when landing... I think it is called 'reverse thrust'... any how I hope your eyes managed to pick the plane out. :O)

I'm wondering which church that is.

For once I managed - barely. Maybe because I once came that way?

I see the smoke. I guess that is a good sign.

By the way, I used to teach handwriting and a left handed person should always cant the paper and put their hand on it just like a right handed person does except the paper and hand is flopped over. It works and I have ladies and gents who were left handed produce some of the finest calligraphy I ever saw.

I bet all that smoke or smog makes some breathtaking sunsets. I'm quite certain that's why I see so many here. ;-)

Smoke gets in my eyes so it's not so important if I don't see the plane.
