Perhaps Great West Aerodrome did have the Airbridge set too high.

Owing to continuing engine problems at Valley, the training squadrons are only too greatfull for any available aircraft...

The AD Scout was considerably ahead of its time and designed with a lot of foresight.

After the last effort, Bloggs decided he’d design one where he could sit further from the scene of the impending accident.

In hindsight, we should have specified a range of 50 miles out of ground effect, not 50 miles at 30 feet or higher.

Decision time before the weekend. What do I like?

NutlooseA Scout built by Cubs.
Nutloose …. And by clever design we have incorporated into it your coffin with built in hand holes for the pallbearers.
Wensleydale … The Longhorn and the Shorthorn are closely followed by the Tallhorn.
cavuman1 …Now that I've landed upright, how in the Hell do I get outta this thing?" said a fuming Hoskins.

Runner-Up
Hydromet
… If it looks good, it'll fly good.

But the CST has to go to the predictable but funny ...

treadigraph …Being late on the round out in this contraption will be interesting" mused Hoskins....

Take it away Tredders ... and burn this bit of evidence of British Aviation history!!

Cheers MPN11!

Happened across this one, let's see what it inspires over the weekend; will judge after I've enjoyed my dinner on Sunday night.
