"If you carefully checked the parts and the instructions before you commenced assembly, why is there a set of wheels left over?"

Not what the instructor had in mind when he asked his student for a new radial from the closest airfield!

Boss, why don't we get a couple of plastic models on sticks to represent a dog fight?

Don't be stupid Hoskins, they haven't invented plastic yet.

Clearly, you've missed the Barn, so I'd like a refund thanks.

Bloggs was only partly successful in exploring the potential of the Hart for ground-attack. Sure, that piece of ground had been soundly attacked, but.....

THIS IS NOT A CAPTION.

In succesive 24 hr periods since putting this pic up, there have been 31, 21, 13, and 5 (by my calculation) suggested Captions.

Boom will be lowered at 1800 GMT tonight.

Danny.

Beware the Ides of March !

You've all Done Very Well, and it is after much mental anguish and burning of the midnight oil, that I pronounce as follows:

Honourable Mention must go to:

Big Pistons Forever for: "That's why you never let the Staish fly alone !"
SASless for: "Fitters - always checking out Hind Ends !"
and: "All it was....was a simple change of a flat tire...but when the Officers got involved.....well you know how that goes!"
Pontius Nav and MPN11 for doing the well-worn Hoskins Round-out to death.
MPN11 again, for the (feeling): "I blame Air Traffic, Sir - they gave me clearance to land !"
[well, we carry the can for everything else, so why not ? - hence: "Never mind the wind and rain - Air Traffic's in the s**t again !" (fellow feeling D.)]

But No.2 in line astern is:

Penny washers for: "Gravity always wins !" (a variation of my old US flying instructor's: "Gravity never lets up !"

'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
And the undoubted Cock of the Midden is (roll of drums):

andytug for: "Sure, he's a hopeless pilot - but his Hart's in the right place !"

'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
Take it away, andytug, with an old man's blessing !

Danny.

Dear Leader, you will not bang your head, and a helmet would spoil your hair as well as obscuring the insignia on your cushion.

The green button launches the nuclear attack missile towards the American warships, and the red button lowers the undercarriage - unless they've been wired up wrong in which case the red button.....
