That's great news, I haven't been this happy since the closing titles of Red Baron started.

Since everyone else is drowning themselves in scotch I'll keep the debit bank balance within mathematical boundaries and have a pint of sludge please barman. beercheers

"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour." Cecil Lewis
