Over to you Graeme!
Reg, I'm serious. I have my serious face on. I do not have a working computer. My silly son fried it with a bottle of Coke this afternoon. I cannot upload/download images (this is not my computer).

Thanks anyway...but open house.

Anything incorrect?

Skwinty, not Tachihi. This is a four seater (two abreast in tandem pairs).

Mine is some quarter a century older.

Well, what can I say?

It has no Wiki article but it is in Aerofiles, with a picture (not the one I used). With these words, Gentlemen, I plan to retire soon, and will follow this up tomorrow morning CET.
