News From Ian And The k9 Marshalling Bedlingtons
Sunday 27th September Jazz, Sapphire and I went for our daily adventures down the Llangollen canal and got stopped by a nice couple, who were moored up on their narrow boat to say hello to Jazz and Sapphire. They hadn't seen a bedlington for a number of years and while we were all talking the last remaining Vulcan bomber flew over head at 2 thousand feet on its way back home from an air display in Southport. Jazz and Sapphire looked on in amazement as did us all, as the fantastic sight of a great plane as it flew into the distance.
The day after, the k9 marshal crew raced down to R A F Shawbury to see the famous red arrows who put on a display. Both Jazz and Sapphire were not put off by all the noise from the jets but sat there in the field and watched them fly 100 feet above their heads. Afterwards they both enjoyed a big 99 ice~cream! Now both Jazz and Sapphire are saving all there paw money to get a fast bird like those planes to put on a display of their own at the next Midland Bedlington show!
Thank you Ian all this brings back memories, when we were posted to Malta and Jon, flying Nimrods, the Vulcan was the other aircraft stationed in Malta with us. Gosh Ian that was many moons ago!
