From the Shore I could see several support ships and a number of MOD launches too. I'll just head for an MOD launch and keep pretty close to it

We are definitely going for a look tomorrow as well - launching from Burseldon at about 11.00 if all goes to plan. Maybe we'll rendezvous somewhere for lunch? Do you have anywhere in mind?

Ollyit joined Ryan, Andrea and myself for a little trip over to have a closer look at that massive floating City in the Solent complete with it's own airport.

Here's a few shots that we took.

After we headed for a soaking by the Hovercraft
