  1. Actually he was an engineer.
  2. Basically the Max is dead. Once the small suppliers are stopping production, they can't keep paying people to sit around. Boeing aren't going to pay them for stuff that they don't want,. The small suppliers go bust or move onto other projects. then the medium suppliers start to fall away and so on. The 757 is a beautiful aircraft. but too big to fill the hole. So we come to a clean sheet build. This is what Boeing should have done the first time. But they ware fixated on no crew training and making it as cheap as possible, which is why some really dumb decisions were made. I fear that the 777x could go the same way unless they stop and think. I mean folding wingtips in a rally busy airport. Enough room to taxy past and then the wing suddenly gets longer! real problem waiting to happen. So it's mainly the military stuff that keeps them going otherwise they are down the tube as a company.
  3. It'll be a Scout and Wasp in 48th along with a Gazelle also in 48th. Or a B29 to replace the ancient one that's still knocking around. Vulcan is a bit too soon. My hope is a Defiant in 1/24th.
  4. Interesting opinion that includes Winston Churchill....
  5. But if June 21st is midsummer's day then Autumn starts in the second week of August. Right?
  6. Airfix Gloster Meteor F8 Korea kit shows the view from about 7 O'clock and slightly above. Just found it: https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/gloster-meteor-f8-korean-war-1-48.html
  7. Tony Small point but I think if it's a touch and go then the hook probably won't be down.
  8. Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My six-year-old grandson asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And liberty and justice for all! Amen!" Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!" Hearing this, my grand-son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?" As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table. He winked at my grand-son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer." "Really?" my grand-son asked. "Cross my heart," the man replied. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes." Naturally, I bought my grand-children ice cream at the end of the meal. My grandson stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life. He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Shove it up your bottom you grouchy old bitch! " Touches the heart doesn't it?
  9. Got mine on Saturday. Couple of pages missing though.
  10. Monarch aircraft can't be used because A: The Administrators do not hold an AOC B: The aircraft may be impounded abroad against debts. In the UK being in administration gives protection, but these laws may not work in other countries. C: Do you want to fly with a crew that know they are about to lose their job? How do you think they must feel? D: The aircraft may be leased and so may not belong to Monarch This is why they didn't 'go bust' until the very last aircraft had landed.
  11. On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife. The certificate paid for a visit to a herbalist living nearby, who was rumoured to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.After some discussion with his wife, the man made a visit to the herbalist and handed his voucher over wondering what he was in for. The elderly herbalist handed a potion to the man, and with a grip on his shoulder warned,'This is a powerful medicine. You take only a teaspoonful, and then say '1-2-3.'When you do, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform as long as you want."Greatly encouraged, the man turned and started to walk away, then stopped and asked,"How do I stop the medicine from working?" The herbalist replied, "Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,' but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."Eager to see if it worked the man went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom.When she came in, he took off his clothes and said, "1-2-3!"Immediately, he was the manliest of men. His wife was excited and began throwing off her clothes, and then she asked, "What was the 1-2-3 for?"And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition because we could end up with a dangling participle.
  12. When does the band start? Is it wind?
