There you go Enzo. It would be the the perfect opportunity. And an excellent choice by the way,

 

But I wanna build a Lynx as well...  :) 

 

And maybe a CH-46 Sea Knight, which is the scariest hecilopter I have ever flown in!  I once flew from Dhahran to Muharraq in one.  When we boarded, literally one fifth of the cargo space was filled with cans of engine oil, hydraulic oil and oil absorbent  (anyone who has served in the RAF knows it as chicken poo  if you get my gist).  I questioned this with the loadmaster who told me it was standard operational practice.  The CH-46 leaks.  And I mean it leaks!   The chickenstuff was used with gay abandon during flight to clear up leaks that occurred ad hoc.  The loadmaster even replenished the hydraulic system in flight!   It's less than fifty miles from Dhahran to Muharraq!!! :yikes:   

 

For the return journey, I opted for a flight in a Saudi UH-1.  That may not have been the wisest choice as it had bullet holes in the floor which nobody had seen fit to repair...   :shrug:  I suppose needs must when the devil vomits into your kettle.
