A Flight From Isolation

Early days in the covid-19 siege and slowly the panic is starting to ease, replaced by medium term concern in the cost of recovery and boredom.

Whilst most people accepted the constraints the anti social behaviour of the minority leaves a nasty taste. The supermarket gatecrashers who posed as NHS workers. The indifference of a portion of young adults who believed themselves immune, the guys who robbed supermarket delivery vans, the Doctor making millions from selling test kits whilst the NHS was starved. Banks who put the price of borrowing up just as the bank rate went down, retailers and wholesalers who jacked up the price goods dramatically to milk distressed purchases. The list grows, the human race deteriorates.

So why the photograph? Above us there are normally a host of aircraft vapour trials at 38,000 feet en route somewhere but now there are none – except for the one lone flight seen after four days of clear blue skies.
