"The main undercarriage doesn't fit on the trailer but is supporting the aircraft. What shall we do?"

"Drive it to Downing Street for a photo-op. The PM reckons that as an F-4 begins with the same letter as an F-35, no-one'll know the difference."

Two days previously the Judge threw out the speeding charge after the Police claimed the lorry was clocked at 500 mph on the M1. Judge ruled that Leicester Police asked for a refund from Truvelo.

RAF Leuchars wrote to the Police suggesting they stop pointing their speed camera at Sidewinder equipped Fighter Jets.
