Navigator guides the chopper to the correct location, however did not expect the only free space in Dowtown Hong Kong to have a 'Quickybuild' block in its place

As this ones coming to an end, I thought I would fill in some details, that was the last Helicopter off the roof although a lot still waited in vain, the link below gives details of some of those who were on it and their future careers in medicine etc... fascinating read.

This is for the most important members of society, Doctors, Dentists, Nurses etc, there s no catagory for " Telephone Sanitation Operatives "
Fast Forward 56 years and everyone realised it was a mistake to leave that profession behind

Thanks Nutty for putting up the pic - I was only 11 but I remember the news on those days quite well…

Some brilliant responses – I don’t know what Kilty’s doctor prescribes but if it’s on the NHS, I’d like some…

A few of my favs…

Andy Tug straight in with a Top Trump:

White House roof - last day of the Trump administration!
Nutty

The Republican party evacuation, the original Snakes and Ladders...
Buster

No need to rush. Dewey & Louie will be along soon.
Hydromet

I'm sorry, the Guinness book of records can't officially recognise it, they're not clowns and it's not a Mini Minor..
Cavuman

Having enjoyed unqualified success in stuffing 19 clowns into a Mini Cooper, the Ring Master goes for the World Record in a Huey.
Chu Chu

Everyone in France was in the Resistance; everyone in the picture was on the last helicopter out of Saigon.
Kiltrash

Well one of you must know how to fly it...
But the winner and (I think) first time recipient of the CST is...

Grummaniser

"Don't all push at once - there'll be another one along in a minute"
Well done, I’m clinging to my chimney pot awaiting a passing Chinook to shuttle it along to you – Hueys are thin on the ground – or even in the air – around here…

Mine might have been “suspicions were growing that there were more adults living at No 47 than had been declared on their Council Tax return…”

First time posting an image so fingers crossed... My starter for 10 is "If we walk backwards slowly maybe they'll think we're getting off"

Now I’m no longer President, be a dear and pop around the rear of the jet and pick up our baggage.

To do list:

1) Get a new operative to shine an orange light on my face at all times so I look youthful.
