The old saying "If it looks good....it will fly good!" proved to be correct.

Hoskin's cunning plan to eliminate induced drag overlooked a small detail.

Sir Clive's first design for the C5 was roundly derided, so he went off to redesign it to a much better personal transport machine.

After some troubling substitutions by Mr Guardiola he is made to fly back to Manchester separately by the Board. Perhaps he has lost the trust of the Club??

As temeratures rise due to climate change, Hoskins has to take drastic action to keep engine and pilot cool.

Pilot's Report: "Suspect engine missing"

OK Judging time....Honourable mentions to....

Hydromet for - "Well, Hoskins, you seriously exceeded the G limits, but at least you managed to land the bits that were left."

Kiltrash for - Anyone seen Doris? ? My Wing Walker? ?

ShyTorque for the classic - Pilot's Report: "Suspect engine missing" Engineer's report: "No evidence of engine missing. Almost everything else IS."

But the CST this week goes to SLXOwft for the subtle- "Not being ex-RN Brad Hoskins had never previously been confronted with the reality of 'fitted for but not with'."

CST on way in something *with* wings
