View Full Version : When it conks out...

It appears that John De Le Measurier spoke eloquently about "conking out" like one of those blokes who fly with T airways or a SMECMA turbo fan.

Personally I am enjoying the fun.

Was he related to John le Mesurier, perchance? ;)

If you were married to Hattie Jacques, "conking out" may well have been the preferable option

Apparently, she always went by like a train

Now where did I leave my Caco decoder ring?

SMECMA turbo fan.
SNECMA, not SMECMA (Société nationale d'études et de construction de moteurs d'aviation).

And definitely not SMEGMA.

Caco:Damn it KAG!I personaly appreciate when people kindly take the time to correct me, there is nothing cynical in my post ;)
For example I am not really against the grammar nazis, who exist in many countries, particularly in english and french speaking countries I guess (in China many, many, mistakes are done in chinese, even in local news papers, but nobody seems to care...).

But I know you Caco: you write very well and post smart comments, that was surely a keyboard miss (N and M being next to each other).

I miss the old Caco however, too many youtube videos now, to which I have no access from where I live...

KAG neither do I.

I am flying again...

Well, no access to this video but with the title I can remember it. I can use my memory to watch it (hear it), so no you don't piss me off Caco, that's fine ;)
But pay attention, like I told you before, to Piaf in English and French red wine before flight, as your radio communications might sound funny all of a sudden after use... ;)

And definitely not SMEGMA.

Dick cheese can be quite a seasonal problem here in Thailand (http://www.ajarnforum.net/vb/health-and-fitness-in-thailand/69532-smegma-is-it-just-because-of-the-rainy-season.html).
