Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Captain. I know you don't like to associate with our Economy passengers, but this is getting out of hand!

Cannondale's attempt to diversify into the aircraft industry was a little ambitious, especially as they based their first model design on a tandem rather than a solo.

It's configured as completely 1st Class. Apparently they object to sitting next to any other passenger.

Captain: Take over Jim, I'm just going for a stroll back to the Guards Van to see how the conductors are. I shouldn't be more than an hour or so.

"Of course, this is just the prototype. Production aircraft will have a curved fuselage to cope with the new circular runways they're advocating..."

Of course this is the prototype, the old diehards insistence on wings, engines etc. The next phase will be much, much longer so you will be able to walk from departures to arrivals without the inconvenience of cramped seating and cardboard sandwiches.

The design for the new Air Force One was quickly adapted to accommodate President Trump's ever expanding "Pinocchio" nose.

If you're lucky and the flight is long enough your meal in steerage will get served but will be cold.

Ars longa ...... ?

"What's it like to fly a long thing like this ?" ..... "Dunno, really - I just fly the front end and the rest follows on behind !"

(said by Bill Pegg, Chief Test Pilot of the Bristol Aviation Company, after landing the "Brabazon" on its first flight in 1950 (?)
