Tonight's runners up ...........
#5632 Wensleydale: "Isn't the Chinook supposed to be a warm dry wind?"
#5664, Nutloose: "Your Uber has arrived."

And the winner is ...............
#5653 Cliver029 "At last HAAS found a way to get their cars to the front of the grid"

The CST is coming underslung in a 120kt freezing downwash to keep it fresh. Congratulations

My entry would have been "You spend all night sitting in a freezing slit trench waiting for transport when don't you know it, three come at once!"

I sent a PM when I posted the winner. Suggest you give him/her a chance to reply. If nothing posted by say 1800A, then one of the runners up can fight for the honour.
