Russian officials infuriate most drivers by zooming around the country in expensive cars with special number plates and flashing blue lights, known as a migalki, on their roofs.

Putin's decree, which takes effect from its publication, cuts the number of cars with migalki and special horns to 1,000 from 7,500

No, I admit that I haven't. It's illegal here, even for medicinal purposes. :{
Another complication is that my major op was for removal of (part of) a lung. I've never smoked (well used to puff the odd cigar).
Have watched two relatives die from smoking-related cancer (and one from non-smoking-related cancer). It's not a pleasant way to go.

Scuse I for asking, Sailor Vee.
But do you actually practice Autorotations in a Sea King, or is the asset to valuable and is the learning done, in a lurching cave of terror simulator?
