The Metropolitan Police are looking for 11 Italian citizens, wanted in connection with the theft of silverware from a sporting facility at Wembley in North East London.

Well we've lightened it as much as we could, but it's still going to need the curvature of the Earth to take off.

You know, if we were to make this out of foam, we could sell them as 3D jigsaws.

Not a caption

Most of my time in VC10s was spent sitting facing aft including a flapless landing into Akrotiri just after the invasion, which was a bit sporty and very noisy. I did get a ride in the RAE VC10 which was spent stooging around the North Sea in very nose high attitudes with the bit that kept it from falling off the thrust switched off or turned down or some such.

It says here locate but do not cement Tab A into Slot B. Where the heck is Tab A?

Richard Noble's original attempt to build a Mach 1 car had a teensy little flaw...

Now we have got the wing off I can see the problem. The dihedral is the wrong way up. Turn it over and put it back, it will fly better.

"Correct Hoskins....you will indeed need the box of 'extra' bits that were left over from the last time you put this one back together - try including them this time!"

We get a magazine delivered every week with another part... Every pilot on the squadron gets their own copy.

And we put this sign on the wall last week, after Hoskins tried to install the wing from an F-4.
