He could have at least done it from the air, and racked up some logbook time. Wierd!Andrew

Im sure the airspace around London is Class D so unless he is an airline piot i doubt the CAA would grant him permission to fly in there to take pictures of the VORSBut you never knowDave

Well, interesting pictures anyways. I fly over those VORs in VATSIM all the time, but never seen them on the ground, the landscape around them etc. Never been to UK either! :)

Whatever floats your boat I suppose. I prefer the view of them from the ND on the cockpit of a 747-400 to be honest, but hey maybe that's just me.

Thanks for that link Ahmed, I followed it and just read how they all work, and I'm sad to say that I found it very interesting.I know how they appear in my cockpit but now I also know what they look like on the ground!!If ever the aircraft equipment fails I could always look out of the window for a big round thing with lots of orange boxes on top!!!Glen
