Airport 77

Is it a weathervane? Is it a folly? Is it an attack drone? Shazza found this rooftop accoutrement in Spearwood. It turns in the wind apparently.

    You’ll note the owner in the front yard. This prevented me taking the shots from another angle thereby including the windmill.

    is it a sort of scarecrow effect? maybe they hope it will stop them changing the flightpath into the airport

    maybe is there a history of Qantas pilots dumping the toilets over Spearwood. If I were a pilot, that’s where I would do it

    not worst

    You can see the windmill in the last shot. I could have taken a better shot at another angle. But, yes, was fearful of being spotted.

    If viewed in isolation the jet is definitely not worst.

    The rest of image, however, defines worst by being a depressing pastiche of everything that is bad about suburbia.

    Nice work shazza.

      Fucking hell that takes me back!

      I lived in Wood Farm (1993 – 1996) just next to Headington and worked in an office on the London Road just around the corner from this house.

      The first floor looked uninhabitable as even from the street you could see the results of the damp and mould.
