Yes, but when Thunderbird 2 launches he has a bluddy ramp under him.

It's ok, when the airstair reverses up it should drop back down onto the ground.

Apparently they're short of tugs so are trialling using the airstairs.

See there was plenty of room down the back, so we will now be able to get a couple more pallets in the front.

Hoskins’ career as a Loadmaster in the Middle East was predictably brief.

What does Qeshm Fars Air mean?

It loosely translates as "oh flippin' 'eck"... Very loosely, you understand.

I thought that "agricultural equipment" was heavier than it said in the manifest.

Yeah, they must have weighed it without the shielding again.

The Texas taildragger conversion kit works great on a 152 , let’s see if the 747 can handle grass strips as well ?

Short field minimum ground runs should be easy now , maybe just a few jato bottles to clear the stadium walls and we are good to go !
