The problem with the World is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

The Buccaneers were retired from the RN when Ark Royal was scrapped, but many were transferred to the RAF and, in desert pink and with striking nose art , saw action in the Gulf War.

Nice to see that good nose art hasn't totally faded into history. \:D
