    Cheers mate. All went well yesterday and hopefully will be back at work in a few weeks.

    I must say I’m impressed with my timing. What better time to have enforced rest at the start of the Ashes, F1 this weekend, and footy?

    :)

    ^^^^^^ this is a load of rubbish !!!

    And the reason I hate social media MORONS who get outraged at the slightest thing !!!

    Ok look, the airline asked this woman to sit here until the flight had everyone on board and then moved her to one of the 5 vacant seats

    Cockhead social media morons had to get their pathetic phones out, take a photo and then post it on social media as if the world was falling apart because aircrew used common sense in regards to a seat needing repairs :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:


    Was probably posted by Steve :p

    Top-secret London-to-Sydney flight broke a record and made aviation history
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-17/30-years-since-qantas-top-secret-london-to-sydney-flight/11413346

    I found these paragraphs particularly interesting.

    "Shell produced this stuff where they had to get batches of fuel in Germany, put it in railway carriages, and shunt it up and down for several days to mix it properly."

    "Then it was put in tankers and taken across the channel to the UK where we fuelled the aircraft for our departure."

    The only jet bi-plane, the only jet ag aircraft. Planned for a production run of 3000 but only 175 rolled out of the Polish factory.
