Summer memories

I live about 12 miles from Heathrow Airport. Not quite under a flight path, but near enough to be aware of planes, particularly when they take off to the East. 

Currently, with so many flights grounded, our skies are clearer and the noise pollution is a little less. One unexpected change though – the occasional appearance of light aircraft overhead. I assume these are usually not allowed due to air traffic control restrictions so close to the airport. I’ve certainly not noticed them before.

The sound of a small plane droning overhead reminds me so much of my childhood summers in rural Gloucestershire. Long hot summer days, running wild in the fields. I expect those days were actually much more limited than I like to remember – who knows.

Strange how things can instantly transport you back though.
