I'm off into a meeting soon
Suggest more coffee breaks at the 'new business' point of the meeting.

It is the CF-103. Open House.

Cheeky....looking at the map it looks like the weather here should be a lot warmer than it is at present
Or did you mean we're still in Europe - Austria - Queensland?
Yep, well Europe anyway!

All quiet...Siemens Halske engine, 1920's design.
