This is his own, personal vickers gun by the way. Next time you are thinking about criticising our American cousins just remember, that is the only civilised country in which you may own a fully functional vickers gun. God i wish I had one.
Thanks to @Kirkz for the tip off about Ladybower Reservoir extremely low water levels. Caution for anyone tempted to recce the site, it's very dangerous with sticky mud that one explorer had to be rescued from after becoming stuck. Some great pics at the article linked at bottom of post.
I agree that many of those rules are stupid and there should be exceptions - muslims for example, ought to go through a stricter line than the rest of us (the shock!) but i actually think that the more human contact the air crew have to have with the ground staff the better. A number of passenger airline pilots have been caught being too pissed to fly in this way.
The recent japanese pilot got caught because the bus driver on the way to the plan smelled the alcohol coming off him
Neither were most of today's commercial pilots....walking, fucking love it..trains, at a pinch buses, but when it comes to flying, sooner not these days, unless the pilot can prove more than 1000 hours fast jet or bomber.
