Is Albion Tower in Albion Street? I used to work there too, although it was about 11 years ago!

Haven't you booted it up yet?

I'm going to have to get hold of a straight jacket to keep myself from doing something stupid.

(In a motherly voice) "...Now, now Hengist, I don't want you up playing that silly game all night" - leave yourself enough energy to type your initial thoughts.

BTW, is the Fox and Newt still going? Ah, the effects of 4 pints of "Kirkstall Ruin"...

Interesting....

Just had a Tornado GR1 fly over low level, following by a Harrier GR7 at 90 deg bank and now a Navy Lynx is buzzing around.

Doesn't exactly improve my mood as both of those aircraft are in Typhoon, but still...

lol DRG,

My watering holes when I lived there were;

The Royal Oak (lazy summers drunk on the bowling green ).
The Sky Rack.
The Faversham.
The Fox 'n Newt (still there I believe).
The Fenton.

Hell, I've probably been standing next to you in the past, supping a pint

I'm working on this contract that takes me up to Penwortham every now and then, just outside Preston. It's quite close to British Aero Space and I frequently see the EF Typhoon jetting around. Actually, I'm up there tomorrow teaching a course... I'll keep watching the skies through the window

This is scary!

I used to work in the Royal Park Mon - Thu nights. Yeah, I am a big hard scary mother....right. How old are you, I'm 36.

I used to love the Faversham, pretentious twat that I am. The Sky Rack was the one with bowling green wasn't it?

Mis-read your post. Which one was the Sky Rack then, the one opposite?

I pity your students tomorrow!

DRG,

The Oak n Rack were literally within spitting distance of each other, just across the road from each other. It was the Oak that had the bowling green, sadly the bowling green is no more. I forgot that I used to frequent the Royal Park as well.. oh and the Hyde Park on Hyde park corner also

I'm also in the 30-something age bracket.

... small world aint it

Frightening really. Was it you (and your 3 mates) that beat me up one night in the Warehouse?

Enough of this. What's the stuff about Balsa Munitions?

You boys across the pond really need to stop teasing us over here

Hopefully we'll be able to get it here before the end of this year right Mr. Hunt? I know, I know....I could order from a UK website. Unfortunately I'm one of those guys who needs to make his sim purchases with a high degree of stealth. The finance minister(a.k.a wife) just doesn't seem to view sims as a necessary purchase...hehehe

Eeek,

You go away - come back expecting to find a discussion of Typhoon and it's turned into a Leeds pub crawl.

Fox & Newts still going AFAIK - though the Pig & Whistle shut down a few years ago, as has the Duchess of York (to make way for a shopping centre - just what Leeds needs more of ) Fenton's still going strong (and is the nearest thing I have to a local for music), some decent live acts crop up in the Royal Park Cellar (nice'n'small). Faversham's gone a bit theme pubby and, I must admit that I only really go in there now when anyone from work has a leaving do. The 'Rack and the 'Oak are still heaving during term times.

...Back to Typhoon ...

YES!!! for 30 quid, you aint gonna loose to much if you don't like it. It's definetly worth 30 quid It's not as arcady as I thought it'd be. Gotta slight prob with the X axis deadzone at the moment.
