Hopefully the link works. Mind you, a mate sat next to me did point out the lack of attention to detail - the wheels don't match!!

Of course the real reason we cant do this nowadays isnt because of the lack of daring in current Air Eng's - it's because we don't have enough Bracing Wires fitted!

Mike7 etc makes a very good point. I note that there is no shot of her doing any paper work. Where's the tech log? Who counter signs for her work? Altogether shoddy workpersonship. Where were her tools? Did she wire lock off at the end? I have my doubts and very serious reservations...very serious indeed!
