Bloggs, let's not run before we can walk. IF you eventually get to fast jets, that's when you can "stand it on its arse and light the 'burners". You will find this aircraft a tad lacking in performance to do that.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

(NOT A CAPCOM ENTRY) Just for info, this is a model of a J3 Cub and no bugsmashers were harmed in the making of this photo...

It was taken at a model aircraft show in Linz, Austria.

Bloggs first landing attempt revealed that the tyres were somewhat overinflated.

Maybe I was meant to throw everything into the other corner?

Or

Please secure the cabin for landing.

To be honest with you, I think Von Braun had something else in mind...

Just at the point of take-off Buster's wallet slipped out of his pocket and dropped to the back of the aircraft.

The aircraft had been about to execute a perfect landing, when it saw OC 230 Sqn at the last minute and got a bit scared.

I don't mind flying around the world with an electric engine, but which bright spark put the batteries down the arse end.
