It is widely acknowledged that their aeroplane was extremely difficult to control. Summed up in one word - 'canard'!

Not so.

Blacksheep stated: which we must presume was in kg.

It may surprise you to learn that topping up when half full has the opposite effect of 'freshening the fuel'. It is a fallacy.
