And the winner is?

Now that we have this Caption Comp back on track, I make the following pronouncements:
3rd to Mike Jenvey for: "Trust me, nothing in my brain, oh er, I mean nothing up my sleeve..."
2nd to The NrFairy for: "I had a word with his secretary, and it was THIS far from the edge of John's belly to his knob..honest!"
and the winner is:
1st WhiteOvies for: "If your'e happy and you know it, clap your hands."
Go to it WhiteOvies

Early prototype tests suggested that the siting of the transponder was not ideal, and that having to land to squawk standby was operationally a little restrictive.

Keeping Labour MPs 'on message' via pagers hadn't worked, but wiring them up to the National Grid was probably a bit extreme, mused Brian as he switched the system to live.

"The thing is" said Brian "we've used a lots of COTS software in this aircraft, which has brought the price down by 50%. Occaisionally Microsoft Windows for Warplanes (TM) needs to be re-booted. To prevent the pilot pushing the button by mistake we've put it here."

Half bonus point for mbga9pgf, Double points for smartase C-bert. It is indeed a pre-production Dave. Another bonus point for what bit it is (should be easy).
