Yes, but what month?

Hmmm...okay...so it's either some esoteric thing about when exactly the change/s in livery collided with the particular aircraft in service....

Otherwise the answer is......well it's still December here, wot you got over there, then???

I had a Jag for a few years , it was called :Gareth,s Folly: 2 engines by other so called experts,1 engine rebuilt by me aaand then I put a small block chevy in, kept it for 1 more year then sold it to a bikie who rebuilt it as a concourse car, he spent 35k and only drove to shows, jags are not good cars

I have owned 3 different Jags. The best of those was a Series3 V12 Daimler Sovereign which I owned whilst living in Germany. What a wonderful machine.

At a wine merchant's, the regular taster died and the director started looking for a new one to hire.


A drunkard with a ragged, dirty look came in to apply for the position. he director of the factory wondered how to send him away. He gave him a glass to drink.


The drunk tried it and said:"It's a Muscat , three years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers. Low grade, but acceptable."


"That's correct", said the boss.


Another glass....


"It's a cabernet, eight years old, a south-western slope, oak barrels, matured at 8 degrees. Requires three more years for finest results."




A third glass...


''It's a pinot blanc champagne, high grade and exclusive,'' calmly said the drunk.


The director was astonished.


He winked at his secretary, secretly suggesting something. She left the room, and came back in with a glass of urine. The alcoholic tried it.


"It's a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant; and if you don't give me the job, I'll name the father."

THAT plane wouldn't be my choice to spin in. Nev

Hi Nev,


Is that because of all of the engine weigh aft or the small rudder?


Good view out of the cockpit!

A rotating body will want to align with the centre of mass of the object. The mass at the extremities makes the forces higher and the position (High up the tail) will push the tail down and the nose up. The best set up is with as much mass as possible near the centre of gravity to avoid undesirable inertia and centrifugal effects.


That's about 4 years ago. OME. A lot of people want "Perfect" Planes. It's nice to have a safe nice to control plane. Pilot love them.. Desk top models are decorations. that Airline managing types (the wrong ones) invariably have on a shelf in the background painted in company colours. . A "Stretched " version of anything is usually much inferior to the original in handling. The first is designed by an aeronautical engineer The later ones by order of an accountant..Nev

It's confusing CB. There are two threads, one carried forward from the original 'old' site, and one started after one of the server moves, when it was thought the first one was lost.
