Each team member being a member of the Yorkshire Universities Air Squadron, hence the real flying outfits. The team pilot is Anna Christensen, seen here in the above photo, with both the “spitfire” and her team mates without whom there would be no flight. Although Anna is the team pilot the chap on the left is actually an officer and pilot who flies in the RAF.

Despite the stirring music and a gallant effort the Yorkshire Spitfire was only airborne for a short while before crashing into the lake. In the above photo Anna can be seen in mid-flight on the “spitfire” whilst the chaps get ready to join her in the drink. Luckily Red Bull take the safety of the crew seriously and they were fished out and taken to dry land shortly after this photo was taken.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
