Prof Hoskins had finally found a solution to the winter runway flooding at Dripping Sodbury Aerodrome; now, where had he left the wings?

Four wheels on my wagon, but I keep rolling along. The Cherokee's on top of me, but I keep rolling along.

Hoskins. Just re-reading your incident report. Exactly how low were you when this "Bird Strike" occurred?
