Arcade Machines and RAF Lyneham

I can never resist a visit to a amusement arcade; I found this unusual crane in Batemans Bay NSW.
Unlike most machines of this sort it picked up something every time, but gave you the chocolate by dropping it onto a small penny fall type thing pushing the chocolate.
But like penny fall part of the prize drops off the side back into the machine.
And I always loved the video games starting with Pong through Asteroids to Burn Out, but now the average home video game has graphics that are as good as the arcade machines. 

And I have played on the ultimate video game while taking pictures at RAF Lyneham about 15 years ago.
I was given the chance to try landing a Hercules at night in one of its giant simulators.
Scary for a first time pilot, and the video games are never quite the same!!!!
