Those that know me and those of you who may have read about my flying adventures will know that I am pretty much obsessed with aviation and flying. Like OBSESSED and I thought I’d try and make aviation “cool” because let’s face is – flying a plane is so much more amazing than driving a car on a road, right?

So this is really interesting and I thought I’d share it. The world’s shortest scheduled flight in operated by LoganAir between Isle of Westray and Isle of Papa Westray, Scotland. The flight time is just 2 minutes – YES 2 MINUTES!

Here’s a video of the flight.

Over and out.

Well this was interesting to see on Wednesday morning. Whilst on my way to Orlando in Florida my family and I saw a Piper aircraft which had crashed minutes before on Interstate 75.

Amazing work by the 65 year old pilot Charles Craig Pulliam of Tampa.

The plane struck a power line and while landing the wing impacted a sign breaking off part of the wing seen in the sign behind the plane. Pulliam had two passengers with him all walked away with no injuries



THE ULTIMATE LIST OF THINGS TO NEVER SAY/ ASK A DJ

This sums up my life when I DJ in a club but mainly at private parties, people feel that they can touch my equipment without asking and that during my working hours I’ll happily give them a DJ “lesson”, also if I had a pound for everytime someone asked if they could “do that scatchy thing” I’d be a billionare.

I love this list, please take note.

Here is the baby that I was flying on Wednesday, new addition to the fleet of Cessna 152’s BP aka Bravo Papa, and the sun was on top form.



AND THE SHORTS ARE OUT

After much debate between my hand being stuck out of my bedroom window and my brain I decided today was the day for shorts to be worn, however my hand feeling the temperature outside wasn’t enough for me to make this huge decision on so naturally I headed to my Twitter page to ask my fellow friends, the response was a no brainer – the shorts were coming out.

It was a really nice day in London, I spent the afternoon finishing off some writing in Green Park with my friend Laura Thompson and ate a cray fish salad and a strawberry cornetto but best of all, my legs felt the warm (with the occasional bit of wind) summers air. I’ve just watched the weather report on TV and apprently the sun will be gone by the weekend – I’ve peaked to early with the shorts so that will be it until May probably, live goes on.



MID WEEK GBK

Since January I’ve been really watching what I eat mid week – god I sound like a woman, anyway, after loosing a whole stone (yeees) I am well on my way to becoming a much more attractive person. This week I decided it was ok for a little mid week snack for lunch and so my favourite burger place GBK in Windsor was high on the list.

Now, usually I’d opt for the chicken satay option however this time I went with the beef chili burger and my word was it amazing.

Back to my smoothies and fruit salad until the weekend.



LETHAL BIZZLE AND A DOLPHIN

Leathal Bizzle recently took to his YouTube to express his views around the “Tulisa” (from N-Dubz) sex tape. It isn’t a secret that Bizzle and Tulisa don’t exactly get on so it’s hilarious to see his reaction to this situation.

If you can understand what on earth Bizzle is saying in the video then congratulations to you because to me it sounded like a load of weird sounds and I think Matt Edmondson had the same impression as well.

Matt (T4 & Radio 1) took to his YouTube page to upload his own version of events.
