Take a look at these aerial views with Debbie & Tony Fogg. We heard back in 2014 that they had a light aircraft and could give us a different view of the area. So you can imagine that we were keen to find out what, why and how… Especially when we saw the above photo looking over the Boating Lakes!
Debbie and Tony Fogg and their Aerial Views
When they got in touch, Debbie told us “Tony, my husband, built his G-TFOG plane in 2006. It’s hangared at a farm at Cockerham, an ideal base for the Lake District and Wales.
“We take friends for a buzz round and the first question is always ‘can we fly over my house?’ I must admit it is a different view and they get quite excited.
“The lowest we can fly is about 500ft. Tony flies all over the country and usually takes a pal with him. I usually see to my other love which is my horses, but lately I’ve been going up in the air more.
“It’s not an expensive hobby once you’ve qualified and purchased your plane. Running costs are less than running your average car. Tony flies himself to the Isle of Man each year to watch the TT’s and the cost is less than fifty pounds.”
A huge thank you to Tony and Debbie for letting us share these photos with you. They’ve all been taken by them from the air back in 2014. What changes can you spot in the pictures?
On the beach at Knott End (weather permitting) you might be lucky enough to catch a big fly-in in aid of The Lancashire Fusiliers. It’s called Lancashire Landings, where you’ll see lots of light aircraft. This event happens each year – the dates are flexible according to weather conditions.
