A misty start here which looks as though it could be here for a
while as there is no wind at all.

Attempt number 2 to see the lady consultant at the Dermatology
Dept. I'm fairly certain I've got the date right now.

Hmm. Genuinely interested that Bombardier have an advert that shows one of their aircraft being flown unsafely (yes I know it's pix trickery, but still)!

Reddo, say hello to the trouble when you're in Las Vegas. She's off there on Thursday, back on Tuesday.

It's alright for some.

Think of the bigger picture Angels - the baked beans must get through!

Nice airy plane Capt Reddo - google says it's a similar size to your Hawker, so presumably you'll end up flying to similar places? Are the Hawkers being phased out?

Yep. After the 2013 bankruptcy of Hawker Beechcraft the company discontinued its business jet range. Although parts support is still ongoing the parts and support for the aircraft is becoming expensive.

Just as I was going to bed last night I noticed that my mobile phone was refusing to let me turn its power off. Everything else looked the
same although nothing could be done using the "apps". This morning I tried again but it was still the same so being me I started pushing
buttons... power, volume and home page when lo and behold something happened. I was asked if I wanted to re-boot it and thought
yes please but was unsure how to get it back from next week. So after more frantic button pushing it has done a "Factory Reset"

Of course this means that I now have to spend ages putting everything back to how I like it.

Finally I have managed it it has only taken me just over 2 hours not including time away from phone whilst busy elsewhere.

Once again the day starts encased in fog.
Hopefully it will clear faster than yesterday as I want to get off
to visit my mother.

Dermatology went well yesterday. I was discharged and can stop
taking the anti-histamines. Seems my body has resolved it's
immune system problem and the itching has gone with it.

The first production aircraft in the series is preserved at the de Havialland Aircraft Museum & Heritage Centre at London Colney. It wasn't quite as luxurious back in 1963.
