Above - Fife Ness, our turning point.

On 12 May 2018, I had the great privilege of being taken up in a small plane and flying from Glenrothes to Fife Ness, then flying down the coast, with some great views of the East Neuk villages.  

The weather could not have been better. There wasn't even too much haze.

I had never seen Crail from this angle before.

The view from Fife Ness - Crail airport right down the coast to Earlsferry are visible, a couple of oil rigs may be seen in the distance and the Fife coast around Kirkcaldy. The opposite side of the Firth of Forth is also visible. 

The WW1 Airfield was in use until 1960. The Royal Flying Corp were its' first users. It became a Torpedo Attack Training School known as HMS Jackdaw. The airfield is now used for Motorsport.

Crail has a great layout. The street "plan" can be seen here.

Another friend with my wife in another plane - even smaller than the one I was in. We didn't seem to be going that fast until we passed each other.
