    ... colloquially known as ....

    Miss Shilling's Orifice

    (Apologies if this is mentioned in the documentary. I've not watched it all.)

    There's just been an item on the local BBC news about recovering parts of a spitfire of the Polish 303 squadron.

    I dare say it'll be repeated this evening.

    (And don't anyone mention retractable undercarriage.)

    He seems to have left the choke on.

    It's probably not relevant to this thread but the above post reminded me of this scene and final wonderful observation from Slim Pickens: :lol:

    Two things I regret never seeing, even on the ground - a 36 and a 58.

    It's probably a bit high in altitude for this thread, but this picture of the ISS and the Dragon supply ship taken by an amateur astronomer is really quite good. The SpaceX automated supply ships that carry supplies up to the ISS are pretty impressive when you think about it. It will return for a splash down next month !!

    The Shackleton made the best noise...





    It looks as though we had a medical event nearby yesterday, although no information has reached my cabin, as yet.

    They appeared to be looking for a 'good field'.

    Over here, the air ambulance service is provided by the military.

    Remember being buzzed by a Shackleton in the 70's bringing iron ore down from Kirkenes in Norway, the other side of the North Cape. We were bound for Port Talbot and in those days anything coming from that direction got buzzed. Ironically when we were approaching Kirkenes we got buzzed by a big Russian plane (it's only a few miles from the Russian border.) It was February so the daylight up there was a faint glow that appeared then disappeared, and it was colder than a Yorkshireman's wallet.
    Couldn't have been much fun flying in that.
