The scene:

A small boy is sitting on his grandfather's knee holding the picture.

The Caption:

So Mummsie says this is why your knickname in the Airforce was "oop-see-daisie"

your fearful symmetry?

Danny, there's got to be the odd witty waspish woman who can aspire, shirley?

You'd better tell the Boss that retro-fitting brakes without writing something in the Pilot's Notes probably wasn't such a good idea after all.

Mirror, mirror on the wall - who is the wittiest of them all?

THIS IS NOT A CAPTION


71 on the clock now. Slowing down. Judgment at midnight. (Not looking forward to this). Fantome, Shirlies always welcome !

Danny.

When I asked you to turn it through 180 degrees to swing the compass, that's not quite what I had in mind...

"The Witching Hour !"

"Wer der Wahl hat, hat der Qual" ("He who has the Choice, has the Torment" - Proverb).

You've all done very well....Strange that Hoskins' "Round Out" did not make an appearance, but then I suppose "Flat Out" might be more apt.

But I must "screw my courage to the sticking point". So, being of sound mind, and with the authority vested in me by a can of Guinness, I hereby pronounce as follows:

Honourable Mention for a gallant effort:
Third-in-Line, Wensleydale for "This is what happens if you try to stand it on its tail on landing" (and I like your cheese, too !)

Proxime Accessit: Number Two, Nutloose, for "We call this version the Tiger Sloth, it lies around all day and does sod all".

But the Laurel Crown must indubitably go to..... (...wait for it, drum roll, insufferable tension...)

Coffman Starter for the gruesome: "We're going to need another Wing Walking Girl chaps"

Take it away, Coffman Starter, with an old man's blessing (even though the damn' things terrified me each time I pressed the button !)

My commiseration to all the gallant losers ! Goodnight, all,

Danny42C

Many thanks Danny ... Well done to you both Nutty and Wensley

Given that we've just had Crufts here in the UK ...



Usual standards of humour, innuendo and double entendre please ...

Listen mate, we took you on because we thought you might know something about dogfighting...
