Living less than a mile away, my earliest childhood memories were of the Vampires flying from RAF Merryfield!

That'd be a great way to arrive at some World Conference - and would be a lot more impressive than Trump's 747!

Whatever. But I do hope that the tacky little slopey-A RAF logo in front of the registration mark doesn't appear on the final scheme.
