Super images and that last one is funny :lol:
Would've been even funnier if John had hitched up his tractor and towed the trailer away, with them all on it :lol:
John...or someone who worked for him was not very happy yesterday, there were quite a lot of people walking through his crops, and a car parked in the middle of the crops too !!! The guy I saw was shouting his nuts off at people....By the way, the people trashing his crops wasn't plane spotters, just members of public wanting to see AF1.

...and the winner for the tallest ladder goes to.........

Wonder what the Americans onboard the VC-25 thought of the largest selection of ladders in the East of England?

This explains why Homebase never has any stock!

The question is, "is John insured to let his field out to the public?"
Don't get me wrong when I ask this. I do admire his patience and generosity and certainly don't begrudge the tiny fee charged to park on his land. However, in this day and age of "blame & claim", by leaving that trailer out he is making himself vulnerable. There are some unscrupulous b*st*rds out there who would take advantage. All it would take is one dick to fall off the trailer.😒

Fair play to him then :thumb:
Although he would be wise to occasionally check that the disclaimers are still in place for all to see.
