Here's another:

Tee hee.

Looks like we're still with Miles - the M.60 Marathon...

'Tee Hee' is my rendering of a 'Snicker' and a Snickers chocolate bar in the UK used to be called a?
One was allocated to RAE Farnborough and used on the Farnborough - Westcott - Bedford ferry service (occasionally stopping at Twinwoods Farm rather than Bedford itself.)
I was told that with a full load of passengers it could not climb very high and that the passengers hated it in winter as there was no heating.

Yes it's a Marathon. I only met one navigator who'd received training in a Marathon and he wasn't very complimentary about it. Slow and with a very poor rate of climb (30 min to 15000ft if light enough) and they often bumped around at 5-7000 ft in and out of cloud.

There was a nasty fatal accident following probable loss of control leading to an overstress - it was later established thet the stick force per 'g' at high speed was much lighter than the RAF requirement.

All yours Noyade

I'm not sure why - last night the correct answer was given by Strablanik (spelling?) but now his post is gone?

Yes, I was confused by the mystery disappearance of the post! I looked after 24 hours and it was gone.
Strablanik was correct so it's over to them if they want to set a challenge otherwise OH?.
