"Never Again" part 3

Now summer has half appeared progress on the repaint is coming along well.

The port wing is finished, other than the roundel and is looking fantastic!

Whilst the rest of the team turned their focus to the starboard wing, Graham 'volunteered' to take on the tail - at 28ft high he's a braver man than me!


Progress was going well until............ out of know where lightning hit the ground about 100 yards away from where we were working, followed by the loudest sonic boom we have ever heard, scaring us all half to death!

Then the rain came (yes, the great British summer strikes again!) we took shelter under the largest umbrella in Yorkshire and out came the morale building homemade rocky road cake.

Thankfully the rain didn't last long and with the increased humidity it didn't take long for Lindy to dry off and work could continue once more.

You really can see the difference a lick of new paint has made.  

With the tail now finished Graham has now returned to terra ferma but not before giving you this unique shot.
XL231 - rather you than me!
