    The F35 Lightnings are just arriving in the UK for the first time. The first are going to 617 Squadron and in a couple of weeks I'm looking forward to seeing them displaying at the Farnborough Air Show, just a couple of miles up the road.

    An amazing shot, and thank goodness I didn't take it.:crying: It looks like those safety straps are attached to a few cinder blocks.

    They're tied to the floor..... the floor that is covered with clips just for such purpose.

    The perspective is impressive, though, as is the framing - even if the IQ looks to be somewhat, shall we say, limited ... btw. the guy on the right in the image is taking a shot with a camera ...

    the ever fragrant Mrs T just looked over my shoulder and said " ***** that for a lark". I agree. I am a cowardy custard for heights.

    Just to be clear, the version of the image I posted was a screen grab on my tablet; it was the only way I could find to share it from where I found it, on Twitter. I downloaded it to my tablet but for some reason could not upload it here.
