Biggin isn't that far from me, and they regularly fly over our house, especially in the summer. The child in me means I always run to the window or step outside to take a look when I hear the Merlin approaching. Never disappointing
It’s fine though because neckbeard put a roll cage in the car… some of the projects I see on YouTube are truly awesome, only to be spoilt by this sort of driving on public roads as you say. Irks me because there are plenty of places you can go if you want to drive it like a tool.
