Them planes - oh them planes - Quasimodo missqoute

lol - yep all of our scouts who were ever camping out at Omaka would know what it is like - and here it is no different. We sleep right under the approach flight path to the local airport and from 10 pm to 7 am there is no air-traffic allowed but then - oh then - hehe - yep from 7 am onwards EVERY 2 min a plane comes in to land.
Yesterday as we waited for our bus, I happen to look skyward - sun still low and the contrails were clearly visible (yep we had frosty clear blue sky) and I saw several planes flying - then saw some more so ended up counting them out and inside 30 seconds saw 18 planes going from here to anywhere - literally criss-crossig the sky. And then they wonder about pollution of our planet from cows . . . .

On the positive side - there are plenty of wind farms here - and one windmill making firm was reported in the local news as taking on another 100 workers to meet demands. Certainly at one stage on autobahn driving in from Hanover we saw several farms - and one had to many windmills to count.
We also saw a Nuclear power generator!! And then I get hassled from a very geriatric local patriotic German citizen for "polluting his personal space" while I had the car idling in the car park. I didn't have the heart to ask him why they still use nuclear power and priorities. . .
