Oh we do like to be beside the seaside

Just could not resist while passing by

Farm strip in Angus Scotland

Can you post another pic but this time at high tide?

Ahhh, satisfying, isn't it!

Home runway, in central Ontario, Canada

Done

To use a pic from the Imgur photo site you need what they call the Direct Link which in this case was

 []()  

Then, place the cursor on a blank line in your post, press the Image button, paste that URL into the box which pops up and click OK. I think you did that correctly; just the URL which was used was this one

 []() 

which was not what you want.

A useful tip for picture insertion is to test the URL by opening a new browser window and putting it in the URL box and seeing what you get. You should see just the image by itself; no frame, no text, no adverts, etc.

Thanks Peter!

Good fun innit! Here's me in our Chippy about to land on Southport beach for the air show, elder daughter in the back.

Barton is my spiritual home.

How can I get the picture to show, rather than its URL?

See my reply to PilotDAR.

You can use the Image button, or you can just paste the direct link to the image, which in your case is

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b132/GZK6NK/SLVL0410res.jpg

into your post in the following format

![](/system/1/user_files/files/000/018/173/18173/6c373299a/large/2392-638.jpg)

Either way does the same thing.

If doing the latter method, carefully note the square and round brackets!

Thanks from me, also, Peter.

Barton is my spiritual home.

It's a great privilege to be able to do this kind of flying.

But I wonder if one could really do it with a 1400kg TB20 with the relatively small wheels common on those types?

I get easily bogged down in wet grass, and once needed a 4x4, with ropes around the main gears, to get pulled out (at Southend, parked in front of what was WillowAir).

Well Peter you could land, taking off could be a problem though!
