This sounds like an oral board scenario question. Do NATS/ EU ANSPs still have oral boars as part of the rating/validation exams? I hope so, they were always great fun.

eggc,

I believe prices will start at 50 pp, and that's for the one-way basic package. The Full Monty is nearer 200 pp for departure+arrival.

Thanks Ian, It was round about the early 1990s I think Scottie. Our rest-room looked out towards the 06 end. The Delta L1011 often got stuck there too.

QANTAS frequently ended up holding abeam the RVP/Engine-test facility. One morning it took it longer to reach the stand after landing than it did to reach DAYNE from the FIR Boundary.
