The Flying Farmer

When I moved down to Gloucestershire in 2009 I did some work professionally for Rob Keen. He needed some photographs of an area of land. Being an experienced aerial photographer I flew out of Gloucestershire airport in a Cessna 172 and got the job done. Several months later he called to say he needed some more work. There was a catch. Come down to the farm and Ill explain, which I did. Turns out he is an ace microlight pilot and he wanted to fly so I could take the photographs which we did and in the November. IT WAS SO COLS. But we got the job done.
Starting that following summer and over a period of several years I had the opportunity of flying again with Rob Keen in his microlight from his own airstrip at Over Farm. He showed me Gloucestershire the Forest of Dean and surrounds in all seasons.
