Probably a trick.

So I will go for Dublin.

Without question marks.

No, it's not Ireland's Eye. You're a loooooong way off (and I made certain I'm right this time). OK, clue time. Think Burt Lancaster.

I'd rather think Ava Gardner.

I suppose then that we are talking of Alcatraz.

Approach to San Francisco (question)

Now, marsie, you cannot get us to forget your horrendous blunder by having us focus on Ava Gardner.

It nearly worked, but not quite. Stormin is quite correct. An enquiry shall be held.

In your place, I would prepare a revolver with a single round in the chamber, a glass of finest single malt, and an ante chamber in which to carry out the only honorable exit possible.

You know your duty.

Well I thought Ava Gardner would do it (she does it for me) but if you chaps are so hard-hearted that you won't forgive another chap's fair and honest mistake, I know my duty. Unfortunately I've already consumed the single malt so, manly like, I shall go and consume another one.

Have a few glasses of single malt, and you will forget where you put the revolver.

Honour is thus retained.

Yes, it's Guernsey. First scheduled flight I ever took as a lad of 10 was on a BIA DC3 from Bournemouth Hurn airport to Guernsey. Luggage on racks behind the pilot and me in the co-pilot's cracked leather seat like the King of the World.

Ah ! Guernsey! Last there in a GB Airways 737.

Many years ago.

T'was full of Portugese potato pickers from Madiera.
Or were they Madierans? They spoke Portugese anyhow.

marsie,

it would take a hell of a side slip to plop it down on the tarmac the way you are facing, or a hell of a tight base leg for the other end.

which was it?

I was 10 years old in a DC3. He didn't let me land it!
