1944: "I've heard the Brits might want to copy our Jeep and call it the Land Rover. Then one day they will want to build a helicopter to carry it inside like this and will probably call it something like the EH101. Let's just hope those silly billies build their helicopter big enough, so it will easily fit in!"

1987: "OOPS! Anybody want a slightly too small helicopter?"

At the birth, Mr Glider began to suspect that he wasn't really the father.

It doesn't say anything about letting the pilots out before you open the door.

Apparently Carruthers the Army Boffins at Wallop say it's a 'Tactical Self-Launching Glider' ... all we need do is roll out the Jeep ... attach the rope to the nose ... and you drive like stink while I pull back on the stick at around 40 Kts ... can't see a problem ... can you

"Marvellous flying by these RAF glider pilot chappies, they managed to avoid all the cars in the carpark, put it down, negotiated the front lobby doors and slewed it right up to the hotel reception desk to book in, shame though, it's a skill sadly not really suited to Army operations"

Museum lighting experts show how it's possible to make a real exhibit look just like an Airfix model.
