Nope, don't think a breaking parachute was the best adaptation for short field performance you ever came up with. ..

Bloody well wish Kiltrash did not live in such a gawd forsaken out of the way place, it's a Devils own job to get in and out safely with the trophy each time he ' effin wins. Why can't he live somewhere more civilised, like Skye...

We'd have been OK if we'd been flying an ATP (all terrain 'plane) not a SAAB.
