York Minster

York Minster is one of the largest places of worship in Europe.  The Minster was built over a period of 250 years, between 1220 and 1472 and, at the time, was at the forefront of gothic architecture.  Like Notre Dame in Paris, York minster suffered a serious fire in 1984 which was apparently caused by a bolt of lightning, resulting in £2.25m worth of damage.  The project to restore the Minster to its former glory was completed one year ahead of schedule in 1988.

RAF Tornado Flypast

Three RAF Tornado jets on a flypast over a very grey RAF Halton in Buckinghamshire.  Following 40 years of active service the Tornados are retiring and being replaced by the Typhoon and the F-35 Lightning.  To say the ambient lighting was poor is an understatement, a break in the clouds would have been great, but hey-ho!
