Some changes and additions
in the 1930s Air Traffic Control
pages, including some 'new' Aerodrome information pages for Ronaldsway
airports with Isle of
Man services from 'Newnes Aeronautics Guide' of 1938.
These pictures were
'Plan B' from yesterday afternoon. 'Plan A' had been to walk around
Sartfell to Glion Kiark for some ground level and aerial photography, but
the cloud was sitting on the upper slopes of the hill and producing some
light rain so I continued on the coast at Lhiannag, still a bit grey there
but at least no rain. I walked down to the beach for some pictures
of the rocks at low tide, then some aerial pictures from the tops.
I've started with an aerial Panorama though, to give an overall picture
of the area. Panasonic TZ200 & DJI Spark 13/6/19
Down at beach level.
Some wild flower close
up pictures from the walk back up from the beach.
Taking a camera into
the air for some shots you just can't get from ground level.
Finally, just a couple
of pictures on the walk back to the main road.

Aerial photography from
three locations yesterday afternoon, focussing on The Ayres. This
is apparently the newest part of the Isle of Man at around 5,000 years
old,band is technically known as a 'raised beach', indeed from Blue Point
you can see the old cliff line running inland. It is an area of grass
covered duneland and designated as a nature reserve. DJI Phantom

The second section of
Aerial Panoramas from 2018 is now uploaded, covering from July to December
with 29 new images.
No new pictures taken
for this month today, but a whole new section for the website! I'm
re-editing the aerial panoramas that I've taken since
the start of 2017 and
placing them in a new subsection of the general aerial pictures.
The thumbnails are in a larger format, 850 pixels wide that
should fit the whole
image easily onto all computer screens. Click on the thumbnail and
it will take you to the large version, scaled at 800 pixels high which
you can then scroll from side to side to see the panorama in more detail.
Use your browser 'Back' button to return to your starting point
on the index page, the
'Index' tab will take you to the top of that page. So far there are
21 panoramas from 2017 and 40 from the first six months of 2018.
This is the new thumbnail
size, use the link below to head to the Aerial Pictures section.
The above picture was
taken before the current (2019) 5 Km drone flying exclusion zone around
Ronaldsway came into force. Nevertheless, it was still conducted
only after prior approval and clearance by ATC at Ronaldsway. Guidance
