The View From Above

We’re at the hilariously named ‘Devil’s Punchbowl’ today. It only looks very slightly like a bowl, and there is nothing to indicate that any sort of alcoholic party drink has ever filled it, or that the Devil owns it (or exists). There’d be more thorns and fire and wasps, wouldn’t there ? Not lovely trees and greenery.

Oh well. Didn’t do very good flyings on both trips I took to film for some reason. Sun was in my eyes a lot for the dawn flight, and I lacked a decent plan for the afternoon too, so apologies that these shots are all a bit disjointed and random.

We had Special Assistant M on spotting duties, and ultraStu doing safety, commentary and occasional filming on his Galaxy S3. Drew quite a crowd in the afternoon – everyone seemed very interested in seeing it fly, and they were all very nice.

I will go back and do this again – I think it could be filmed a lot better, and not all from that one launch area – I need to get down the other end of it, and right in the valley, where the Youth Hostel is. I assume that’s the Devils Youth Hostel, is it ??
