  7. Tiny bit less obtrusive than driving a range rover through the front door maybe? :)
  8. was a Yankee JEEP..not a British Rangie...hence the reason if faltered whilst trying to negotiate the curb ;)
  9. Damn, beat me to it...

  10. Sorry to disappoint you mate, i have it on good authority that it was a couple of eyties on the way home from having a cappuchino in the mess at Coningsby, bloody annoyed they were too, they missed tea at Brindisi.!!
  11. Two Typhoons were scrambled last week after a plane fell off the radar and air traffic couldn't contact it, coming into land somewhere in England.

    But by the time they got into the air it had already landed, be better off with a/c model spitfires at least they'd get somewhere.
