I find posts telling those trying to cope with the course and hopefully graduate under this total shambles of a system to man up and stop moaning to be in very poor taste. If I had had it inflicted...

12% mentioned here amongst many other figures. As to your own figures, it strikes me that talking about nurses is rather like talking about soldiers, ie of privates and generals all in the same...

Oh, I thought it was 60 a/c for £66M? Maybe it was 66 a/c for £60M? Even more of a billy bargain if so!

Indeed Dervish, and yet still to be declared as such. It was not always so though, a not dissimilar issue affected the Handley Page Hastings in the 60's. An elevator hinge outrigger bracket detached...

Geriaviator, many thanks for the link! I can only agree with you that to put such a worthy and voluntary project onto a commercial, ie profit making basis, is totally inappropriate. As to the grave...
