“At the end of Ballyhoo road make sharp right turn to Airport beach road”
”Do not continue onto E(mergency) point road”

Google maps was basically right but better not to be trusted.

Some people seem to think, Skipper, that we have landed in Dutch Harbour, Alaska, never believe everything you see on the Internet...

Don't worry, Nav, some swot on ' What Airfield' would have us located in minutes..

Call me superstitious but I will never, repeat never, use a runway 13 again.

or

Hoskins, we are professional pilots, you are not deplaning until we've completed the shutdown checklist.


I can't believe we've not had ... it'll buff out.

Does the judge know he's judging? (Seek a yes on this one.)

No, I'm sorry, but we parked it correctly! What you'll find is that it was there for so long, Continental Drift moved it into the gully!

Sorry folks! I got caught in the log-in-forgot password-etc etc!!

So, here goes! Sorry if I have judged in a bit of an impulsive manner!!

I thought this was a great caption:

"Hoskins, we are professional pilots, you are not deplaning until we've completed the shutdown checklist."

Take it away, SLXOwft
