A new device for Nessie spotting.
Loch Ness monster expert Gordon Holmes from Shipley has taken to the skies in his latest bid to capture footage of the legendary beast.
Mr Holmes is Britains’s most dedicated Nessie hunter and this summer sent a tiny camcorder hovering 80 foot above Loch Ness, to search for signs of water disturbances.
His home-made spy in the sky was carried aloft by 10 helium filled foil balloons, explained Mr Holmes: “Originally, I’d hoped to drag the cluster of balloons plus camera around the loch using a radio controlled boat, but the winds are so unpredictable.
Actually this is pretty low tech and prone to failure. What will it find? Eh, I’m not too excited. It can’t even be controlled.
Bigfoot is also being hunted from the air. That project is a bit more high tech. But I suspect the results might be the same – no monster. That doesn’t preclude some other interesting discovery from these devices.
