Well, let's see: Rum, hot water, sugar, glass of cold water for teeth, pills, hot-water-bottle, blinders. Check to all. I am turning in. See you guys in the morning Cheerio .

Edit: skwinty, maybe you would be best off knowing already now that Mate has a Baker handle and tie, but not from a Lightning. Low altitude Jaguar.

Morning!

Are we still looking for the large biplane 3 or 4 pages back?

If so, it's the....

Werkspoor Jumbo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PS. Good call on the Gloster Grebe back there Mr skwinty! Welcome.

Hi Graeme! Couldn't sleep. The challenge kept bothering me .

You may be interested in recalling that the Jumbo was posted last November (by me, silhouetted by Mate) and was cracked by you (same link to Wiki posted).

Ho hum. We are going so fast, so fast…..

See you in my morning. Your AQ in?

Good morning/evening all.

Reg, I'm surprised it took you so long to NB a repeat.

Off to work shortly.

Over to you Graeme.

Morning!

the Jumbo was posted last November
Null and void then?!

Make it OPEN HOUSE.
Your AQ in?
Yeah mate, but don't you think it an odd choice? I was looking for a trick.

Oh well, back to lurking...............

Morning /afternoon!

Slow? Well, turning to my early 70s…..

Yes the AQ. Maybe some have complained that it has been too tough lately. Relatively short lists of crackers on the TA and the Kiebitz. Smelled a trick, too, but the tail numbers match with the pics in net.

What! Open House? Let's see what can be done about it

Came out loud and clear:

The Aircraft Factory Sling from New Zealand.

Which has been posted twice already. Do you know where to find the list of earlier posts?

OK, South Africa.

Copy from above: Which has been posted twice already. Do you know where to find the list of earlier posts?

First posted by Skytrain and then posted by somebody 18 years of age in South Africa….

Skwinty, here is the link to the so-called Mel's list (kept by an eminent fellow PPRuNer, to whom we all are grateful):
