The rumours of a blockage in the pilot training pipeline proved to be far more literal than anyone expected!

Well the design does look good, 35000 feet 450knots 8 machine guns HF radio 4G turn armour plating self sealing fuel tanks auto pilot Cat 111 landing 900 mile range, however the tea and coffee making facilities does need a bit of work

So, once again, you thought you could fly it through the tunnel because it looked big enough... and Ginger was winding you up about it.

I'll put up some results first thing Friday morning, so we can have a new photo for the weekend.

Isn't it annoying how you always think of a really good caption after the competition has closed? It has been worrying me all the week why the photo of the priest with the machine gun reminded me of something - but at last I've got it. Don Camillo! And Fernandel in the title part.

Wonderful stories.

"Whose idea was it to put a real aeroplane in here? You've reduced the RAF's inventory by 1.3%."

Is this the British Empire Strikes Back movie, if so we aren't going anywhere.

If I shoot it down, can I meet Princess Leia in a Bikini ?

Hoskins, shoot it down, then you can wear what you like son.

When designing the Trent, Rolls Royce decided to stick with what they knew.

I know Hoskins is a bit of a ham-fisted clot, but it's hard to find men of his calibre.

We've repaired the dink in the port leading edge, and the rest buffed out OK, so hopefully no one will notice.

The good news is, we've figured out what's causing the drag. The bad news is, I have to get off the wing...

As soon as they get the photos of Harry and Meghan's baby, we'll get the film to you, and shoot you down the tube to the chemist to get them processed.

I wish I knew what it was all about - but it made me chuckle. Could it be some arcane religious ceremony?

Please enlighten us, Cavuman, and in the meantime please accept the CST, together with a past-its-sell-by-date Easter egg.

Thanks all.
