Ospreys at night

Post by bizfreeq » Mon Nov 11, 2019 7:53 pm

On the night of Monday 4th Nov, Knife 73 & 74 visited Bournemouth for fuel. Many thanks to the guys of the 7th SOS and all at XLR for allowing the access to take these and also to XLR management for clearing these for online use. Hope you enjoy:

A smokey start....no one seemed worried so I guess it happens a lot!
