    Whitehaven Maritime Festival - Red Arrow's Videos & Lots More Pics Added

    We've recently installed a new webcam in one of our remote office locations, the webcam is a high-tech one and not a dodgy £20 Logitech thing. Anyhow, we've installed it for people to use whilst the Maritime Festival is on this weekend, for those who cant make it here. The camera is controllable so you can move it left, right, up, down, zoom in & out etc.

    Heres a few shots I've taken over the past few days of different "tall ships" coming into the harbour:

    Grand Turk









    Matthew



    Vilma & Zebu



    Galciere



    Preparations For The Festival - Setting It Up






    The webcam can be viewed here:

    However we are experiencing some problems, probably because of the amount of folk trying to access it. Thankfully I have a direct internal link so I'm unaffected

    I'll try and keep this updated if more boats and stuff arrive, but I also need to work ...

    Some pics from yesterday on my dinner break, after work and during the Red Arrows show:



































    mmmm R32 goodness.













    The next few pics are shots of WW2 aeroplanes, taken from the window next to my desk at work





















    Crowds gathering for the Red Arrow display team:









    The Red Arrows (I'm impressed with how these turned out considering I was standing on a hill, in a shirt and trousers with no jacket using a camera phone!)




















































    I might put the drunken pics from today & tonight up tomorrow

    PBY Catalina, cant remember that one, I know the Balmoral was kicking around somewhere, cos I had the fantastic idea of going on it then getting a helicopter ride ... I was talked out of it though

    Ahh, I was thinking of a boat

    Cant remember seeing that, though I did hear a few planes but that was usually when I was in a local drinking establishment...
