Calling this so we can have a newbie for the weekend. Some great responses.

3rd jolihokistix with
Oh dear, no, not those piano keys Hoskins!

2nd Dan Gerous with
How ironic, he crashed into the aisle with the Red Bull in it.

but the one that landed just right was Wensleydale channeling John Osborne with
"Don't look back in hangar"!!

The CST will be sent by autolanding drone.
