Re: Rally thoughts

My thoughts exactly Nic.
Blooming Eryl Smith leading me to the devil's brew Sat evening was a highlight.
Just seeing lots of happy people was enough for me.

Re: Copper Crush Gasket Seal (Oil filter) - AN900-28 /MS35769-48

No. You have it wrong. I am saying the items are bloody expensive from the original retailer.
In no way am I implying anything untoward.

Re: CAA Consultation

Much unnecessary work..... Hmmmm. Another Squadron leader about to retire and is looking at the RAF retirement home for a job, therefore requiring the home's management to increase it's fees to accommodate?

I do hope this is taken as a bit of satire.

Re: CAA Consultation

It is extremely unfortunate that the CAA sees itself as untouchable, therefore does as it likes, with no fear of repercussions from above. The DfT says "We want less red tape and GA to be the best in the world". The CAA says. "" #£*"'£/' *" off. Who is the DfT to tell us what to do?". What chance ha...

CAA Consultation

I know I don't like the way ex RAF 'Tally ho' types seem to get parachuted in to jobs at the CAA, but this cert...

Re: Vale of York Strut Zoom presentation. 18/02/21

Matt will be delayed due to being unable to get out of bed on a morning.
His excuse is that he has a T38 authorisation flight and California is behind real time.

The meeting starts at 21:00 and Matt will join us when he gets out of his pyjamas.
