Piss off Biggles

I came across an amusing picture on the internet, it told how a Welsh farmer grew so tired of low flying aircraft using his farm as a 'target' and scaring his children that he took matters into his own hands. I googled the key words "piss off biggles" and the story appears to be quite true. I've remade the graphic below and included the picture credit to the original photographer, Terry Blacow a former BAe Systems (Warton) photographer.

One of the links I found included the photo credit with a tale about another photographer who spoke with the farmer. Also, if you google the number on the plane (xx164) you will find this page. It details the demise of the plane in the photo.It crashed on take off in February 1996, the pilot tried to eject but was killed due to his parachute not having time to deploy. It's hard to feel any sympathy for the pilot involved since it happened in Wales, which has been under the military occupation of the English for around 800 years. If anything we should be thankful that it was only the pilot that was killed.

And it's not just Valley on Ynys Mon, there are over 140 sites in Wales under the military occupation of the English MOD. There is a detailed report from "Cymdeithas y Cymod" here (.pdf).

But here's a small excerpt.

So isn't it time we told all factions of the English military to piss off home. Their imperialist occupation has gone on for far too long. And the next time one of their planes or drones crashes it could be on a Welsh school.
