Leighton Buzzard private pilot Graham Mountford likes nothing better than hopping in his plane for a bird’s eye view of his home town.

And having lived in Leighton for 26 years and been a pilot for 13 of those years he’s seen some great views looking down on the rest of us.

And the good news for LBO readers is that he’s decided to share some of the pictures he’s taken from up in the clouds with the rest of us!

Graham’s latest offering sh0ws us an aerial view the huge new wind turbine which has recently been erected in Heath and Reach and was been greeted with a mixed reception. The photo was snapped from 1,500ft feet up on Christmas Eve tooking towards Heath & Reach.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be publishing a number of Graham’s pictures.

He said: “Even after so long in the town and in the air I am always spotting something new and interesting from above, that’s why I wanted to share the view with LBO readers. I hope LB residents have fun trying to spot their houses.”
