It makes departing much easier ...no more need for push-back tugs, we just reverse the polarity at the gate.

Hoping the supplier's engineers were more competent than their trademark lawyers, Con-Pilot takes delivery of a new aircraft.

Well that's another giant leap towards the Prime Minister pledge to get the UK Carbon Neutral by 2030..
So why is he still flying a gas guzzling Boris Force 1 ??
Oh yes, the rules don't apply to him.
