Inside control room 2. Equipment from another era.
Abandoned and now being decommissioned. What a reminder of how things can go wrong.
The control room to reactor no 4 which exploded is just a few hundred feet away.
Inside Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Extraordinary. So much history.

It's lovely to see kids so excited about getting on a plane. Reminds me of my first flight in 1969.... BAC -1 11 from Speke to Spain
I have counted no less than 15 under 5s on my #easyjet flight to Spain. A noisy descent guaranteed as ears clog
