Too embarrassed to even admit that he had seen the aircraft, Treadigraph refused to log it in his Ian Allen book.

Mrs Duval rushed across to her husband demanding to let her have her hair dryer back as she was just out the shower.
The ground crew sniggered as she had forgotten her dressing gown.

When I asked for an aircraft with a glass cockpit, this wasn't quite what I had in mind...

Having spared no expense for a glass cockpit, every saving and cutback was made to the airframe to bring it into budget.

You can slag off the Russians all you want, but at least they can manage to get the fan inside the cockpit.

Madam Cristaline Duval has had to attend yoga classes every day to get super flexible. He only built it so that they could join the all electric mile hight club.

Fly? Of course it doesn't fly. That's not the point! It's electric for God's sake. Zero emissions is the target, not performance.
