Re: I wonder...
I remember walking along Spurn head* one day when a Lightning went past very close to the spit at really quite high speed.
It was rather loud and very unexpected but what was most impressive was that I swear I looked DOWN into the cockpit.
*Spurn head is a sand spit sticking out miles into the Humber estuary, technically the head is the end of the Spurn. The top of it is between 6-9m above sea level.
