Towing out to the launch point across a frosty airfield. A jet taxiing out to take off. The grobs parked off to the side out of the way. The jet movement completing with takeoff.

Above the inversion at 3000 feet. Basingstoke. Through the haze past Aldermaston, Didcot and its fumulus plume can just be seen. To the South the sun glints off the sea revealing ships in the English channel. Isle of Wight to the far right. Smoke and haze on a low level inversion.

Another view Southwards towards Hayling Island. Looking down at Lasham Airfield from the West-Northwest. Frost lingers all day in the shadows. A smoke plume from a bonfire.
