Cet aigle est magnifique et très impressionnant.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Martine.
Very impressive and imposing...
Brian Walbey: One of the most impressive memorials at the place.
Beautiful, Brian. I'm picturing a person there to give it scale....
Brian Walbey: I have got some pictures of the whole thing but the lower part takes the drama away from this part.
Most impressive Brian! Very nicely captured.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
This looks rather American with that eagle Brian.
Brian Walbey: My thought also Chad.

I've seen this for myself; it is hugely impressive. I found the whole of the Arboretum quite moving. I will go back again before long and see how the trees are maturing.
Brian Walbey: One of the most impressive memorials from the drama point of view. I guess we will be long gone before the trees have grown to full size and the memorials are set among leafy glades, which I presume is the planned outcome.

In my view too grand and too aggressive, sorry. I agree with Chad.
Brian Walbey: It does look a bit American but it is a very striking memorial to see in real life.

No mistaking what country this commemmorates
Brian Walbey: If your'e thinking America then it isn't Lisl, it is our Auxiliary Royal Air Force.
This reminds me of the Trump win, believe it or not.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean, but in truth I don't wish to be reminded of that catastrophic event, it quite spoilt my breakfast this morning when I turned the television on for the news!!

Eh, it is going to snap off its own foot. Our air force also had an eagle like this. As a member of one of the other military arms, you referred to them as 'sparrows'. Sure, they had names for us as well smile
Brian Walbey: It does look rather aa if it is about to bite its own foot.
That's quite the eagle. Great sky behind it too.
Brian Walbey: Very spectacular isn't it.
It has been a few years since we last went. It is a wonderful place
Brian Walbey: They keep adding new memorials all the time as well.
