    I dunno... if there's smoke in the aircraft, I think I'd like a different way out than the slides. More like this:

    Actually, he "might" have been telling the truth. If he worked for Martin-Baker and it was anywhere near Higher Denham, near Uxbridge in Middlesex he might not have been lying.

    Or... use your imagination. Or not.

    You've got to be joking!!!!









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I know, but even that's a bit extreme for you surely

    Ahhh... that explains it. We used to call the either "self loading baggage" or the GIB (Guy in Back).
