After a number of emails and admittedly not much time (over the xmas period as well) we had no permission to shoot at Southend Airport. I thought we were heading for Leigh marshes to shoot the military jacket by the WW2 pilbox. ‘Bomber’ (of Switch Skates and Zukie Clothing) had other plans and bought me and Andy (the talent) breakfast at the cafe on the airport while he sweet talked the manager at the flying school. I think he may have bought a few helicopter lessons and offered permanent discounts in his store!
The Vulcan Bomber is pretty famous round these parts and although there is a restoration society the guy from the flying school advised that it will never fly again, although they do fire up the engines occasionaly which are pretty loud!
Despite his hangover Andy did a great job of, well, looking hungover! Jamie was his usual excited self and special thanks to The Flight Centre. I’ve already asked for a helicopter lesson for my birthday.
