Some of the highlights of the year that Calyx Picture Agency has covered.
Aircraft played a big part in the year with local Red Arrows official artist, David Bent, having his book presented to Prince Charles at the Royal International Air Tattoo in July.:
The RIAT event provided a couple of static aircraft pictures as well:
Aircraft tails were in fashion as the new Wiltshire Air Ambulance took to the skies above Wiltshire for the first time as it flew over Coate Water on its way to GWH for the first time.
Moving planes were a bit slower than expected! “There’s a porpoise behind me and he is treading on my tail.” (Miss quote from Alice in Wonderland) as an Airbus was moved from Kemble and AMS showed how it was done.
Feeling as though you could fly must have been the emotions felt by the A Level students at New College when they saw their results.
Selfies were the ‘In Thing’ during the year as several high profile visitors were seen locally joining in the craze.
Boris was seen at Nationwide.
Zara Phillips and baby Mia at were at Barbury Castle for the equestrian weekend.

The Police were busy too.
Christmas babies and lovely ladies lightened the year
With an element of slapstick thrown in.
At the end of the day charities smiled too.
Oh and there was some sport as well
Swindon Town scored one over on Bristol City.
While Supermarine won’t be sitting it out under their new coach.
Höög returned to give Wildcats there best winning streak although the odd fight did help.
While the ladies did well at football there was the odd slip up on the way,
the Cheerleaders showed off their pyramid.
But Who did the Roller Derby get to give some extra help with their win at the Oasis.
Here ends the high flying year 2014, I hope it has been as good for you as for me and
I want to wish all followers and friends a very happy and busy new year.
