Captain Oates told his fellow crew he was just stepping out for a moment and could be some time.

(Nutty, I meant the tiltrotor jobbies! I have seen an avian osprey in Florida and am delighted to see red kites in my neck of the woods now - think a pair have taken up residence just west of Biggin and they are quite wide ranging. Buzzards are commonplace now... cheers, Treads, currently somewhere near Duxford en train...)

As Treadigraph spotted an Osprey at 11 o'clock, he unthinkingly tried to pull himself up to get a better view using the bar above his head...

At the statue unveiling, Harry and Wills were shown Mercedes latest car safety system. Airbags are so old hat.

As Treadigraph goes through Duxford on the Thameslink he is discovered hiding in the train toilet without a valid ticket by the inspecter. Now normally we wait till the train stops before throwing the fare dodger off explained Nutty, but it's better this way and improves everyone's chances of winning the Cap Comp next time.
