It's a great idea Hoskins making it so large it dominates the air, however appears seem to be a problem ...
What to you mean sir??
Well Port it's the MK 2 version, Starboard the MK 5 vesion and the centre is the MK 21b version...and don't get me started on EACH engine has a different number of cylinders

Prince Andrew has his new aircraft delivered after getting his share of his mums estate...
But extravagant isn't it??
Well this way he can live in the middle and Fergie and Koo never get to know about the other.

Murphy the boss said you were working on some new laws?

yes sir but I also designed a new plane.

Ok is that it outside? Yes and what was the new law?

Anything that can go wrong will go wrong,

If I were you Murphy I’d stick to these laws.

yes sir.

Sorry sir the first flight has been delayed by engineering. It appears the starboard Nav light is oriented 3 degrees too far aft.
