Gordon Bumblebee-Smythe, Head of Rover Garden Products, displays the company's latest Leaf Blower, suitable for larger gardens and estates. "We got an offer too good to refuse from Rolls Royce to take some Trent engines off their hands at an unbelievable price. Apparently they are factory seconds"

It works on the same principle as the Harrier, but we can't use it yet because the zip fasteners for the boots haven't arrived yet.

We are calling it the "Trump" model. It has a really big mouth and has no visible means of support.

The first of the new RAF Machines, Runway Deicing utilising ex-Tristar engines promised to clear runways faster as soon as they developed a sufficiently powerful bowser.

The additional 5th engine for the HS Trident was found to be underpowered and so a upgrade was needed before the curvature of the Earth ran out

Eugene Corporation has finished his half of the joint venture, he is now waiting for Donald Douglas to come up with the front half of the Douglas-Corporation DC-1. Or maybe 2, he hadn't decided yet.

BAE finally arrived at the perfect solution.....Lorry Loads of Pounds Sterling are dumped into the front end and come out the rear nicely stacked and wrapped for deposit.....MoD found the new method much more efficient and granted a bonus on the Cost Plus Contract with indications for repeat procurements in the future.
