    The need for food etc at home is irrelevant. It is the idea of moving such a massive climate controlled moving city across the plant for a tiny human weight fraction. It is a incredibly wasteful way to travel.

    One of the last Dambuster squadron members Died in December 2018, His Wife also passed away ten days later. The couple had no known family so it might have been a very quiet funeral, had it not been for the Media Officer at RAF Cosford, who picked up on this and immediately alerted as many people as possible about the situation via local and social media. One of Our pilots at Otheton noticed this and alerted me with a screenshot of this Twitter Post. With only one and a half days to go, I called a friend in Oxfordshire about this and he said he would be there. . there was no time to expect other local flyers to attend, being a working day. https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/local-hubs/telford/2019/01/22/hundreds-at-funeral-of-telford-dambusters-raf-couple-who-died-10-days-apart/ The crowd was amazing. . over three hundred people were there, and My mate and I supplied / served hot bacon rolls and tea afterwards for the flag bearers, the pall bearers and anyone else who fancied a bit of snap. . .out of the car boot. My Mate Clark thought of this, as, since the people had no relatives, there would be no wake as such. . and the crematorium is on a hilltop ad it was bloody freezing in that wind. . .He's a Good Man, ex Marine (UK) It's a shame that Edna and Victor were unable to see it all. . . the RAF Bugler with his last post was very moving. . .

    When I was at school you only used log tables for trigonometry until year 12 physics when the Hermi was allowed limited introduction. The main frame computer at uni occupied a whole floor and you programmed it on punch cards. kaz

    You got me Phil! I thought it was a thread about relocating charismatic Central European trades persons.

    An amazing story, amazing group of aviators and technicians who pulled off the impossible, and the incredible Barnes Wallis who only had a slide rule to come up with the method.

    Give priority to being situationally aware. No good hitting someone with the ball in the centre. . Never fixate on any ONE thing. You can't concentrate on the ball in the centre during the flare in a x -wind. The so called "Seat of the Pants" flying implies an awareness of skidding or flying out of balance.... Feeling what the plane is doing. Ignore only when in IMC and you are not supposed to be THERE...Nev
