"I do miss the sight & sound of it flying over Reading though."
Playing hockey at Reading (well, Sonning really) back in the day, just after 13.00 on a Saturday you could hear the engine note change as she went past the Beacon and they cranked it up further before going all out after the coast. We'd stop and watch, regardless whether the ball was in play...
Def, one of the great sights of my lifetime
