Don't worry - it balances back when the pilot sits down on his wallet.

To the tune of the 'Eton Boating Song':-

"Oh the s3xual life of the VeeSee10
is greater than anyone thinks,
at the height of the mating season, he tries to b*gger the pan
but the pan has its aynal orifice
blocked by the sands of the Thames
which accounts for the mess on the surface
and the pan its inscrutable smile"

Very good, but if we are going to use it on carrier ops, perhaps we need a longer nose leg

I knew it all along -- put four engines on the tail and there's going to be trouble.

Flg Off Gulliver had rotated, but the Lilliputians had tied it down with a lot of little strings so it wouldn't take off.

At Milton Keynes, known for being England's flattest city*, the RAF Downhill Team get in some much needed practice..

...and so the idea for the Snowdome was born

* flattest city might not be correct but never let facts get in the way of a Caption. .
