    Well a big enough cheque book is the answer to carbon footprint

    That is my understanding also - Can you imagine what would happen to LHA as an international hub were there to be a unilateral duty charged on aviation fuel and a different rate at AMS or indeed any other major hub ? Is not ALL aviation fuel traded in US Dollars ? An aviation fuel tax would...

    Control box window sucker

    Run a damp finger around the rim of the suction cup before applying to clean glass - Maybe even a sliver of silicone sealant. Have used one of them to hold a car window up when the leccy winder went caput before now ;) The biggest problem was getting it off when I repaired it 3 months later....

    Reminds me of when our 1494 Hydrashift had been stopped and parked up in the yard 2 hours previously - started itself up and then burst into flames - Albert Hurst sorted it and sent the NFU Mutual the bill.

    what grinds your gears
