G-force tests over Yeovil

posted in: Aviation 0

Amazing sight over the office in Yeovil on Tuesday. A fast jet, presumably a Harrier or Hawk out of Yeovilton, painted this Cumberland sausage of a contrail while performing a G-force test. The test started from the outside and got tighter as it went. The received wisdom is it was a trainee pilot being tested, not the plane.

It’s a slightly odd business, trying to take a picture with an iPhone in the gents at Waterloo station in London. I contemplated the folly of it for a moment or two. But the new signage above the urinals got the better of me.

Fortunately there was a lull in the steady flow of discharging vessels and so my snapping could not be overseen nor misunderstood (“it’s for my blog!” he was heard crying when lead away by British Transport Police).
