Yes they do, possibly only trying to protect their little piece of turf....

I mean no offence guys, I came in on the back of the Retired Airline Pilot statement. presumably therefore over 60's, why would you want to work. no it's not that hard, in fact flying the machine is the easy part, so long as you're well organised and ahead of the game. It's everything else you have to do, all those things you have long since forgotten about.

Hahaaar! I probably was a bit generous with the notice, but we old folk can't be rushed
