Mr Baker and Mr Martin start trials from first principles, rope in Mr Royce and Mr Rolls to supply the motive power.

The test pilots found that it was faster to put the Jaguar prototype on a trailer and drive it from Idlewilde to La Guardia, than to fly it.

Well the MOD contract stated that the aircraft had to be capable of sustained movement off the ground for a period of 5 hours. Looks like job done !

If the spinning prop doesn't keep people 2m away, at least it'll keep live people off.

In the 1920's Aircraft were all the rage, in fact Cinderella would not be seen dead in a coach and four anymore.

The transport officer misheard Bloggs' request. She though he said "I suppose a truck's out of the question?"
