Ah well, not a superior Boeing but at least it's fairly solid  ;)

Have a safe journey and maybe catch you at TINGS?  :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the good wishes guys.

Looking forward to meeting a lot of on-line friends at TINGS

I presume you've conveniently forgotten about the Dreamliners that have been grounded this week Paul.  ;D

Fault with the Rolls Royce engine though, not Boeing's fault  ;)

Those with GE engines are unaffected  :thumbsup:

Early cracking and corrosion of wing spars on Airbuses is well known and not limited to the A380 as reported, and that IS down to Airbus  ;) Don't panic though, the A340 is fine, can't say the same about A320s though!  ;D

Another good birthday for train stuff yesterday! ;D

No actual trains as I now have all the stock I need/want, but did still get among other (mainly car-related) things:-

British Transport Films Collection double-DVD, Volume 7 (includes Motorail and InterCity 125 films)

Traction Archive No.3 DVD - East Coast 'Deltics'

Looking Back At Deltics book - lots of lovely colour pics  8)


Plus after much time in the kitchen Clare produced this:-



Very impressed, and very tasty it is too  :P
