    Why, are you feeling neandathal Bill

    If something can be taken two ways and one of them gives offence, then it is the other way that was meant.

    my first aircraft only had one central wheel . the one before that only had a large skid . with a drop off dolly for take off. but hardly used it for fear of it bouncing back up and hitting the fusealarge . tail wheels were for aircraft with an engine . and made life so mutch easyer.

    Ey up Vicky,
    Don't worry, I know what a 'dolly' is but couldn't resist having a giggle. My nice beaver sits on the dashboard of my car and Viktor is my Kamchatka Peninsula Meerkat who is hoping to join me on expeditions in the Rans. However, for the sake of decency it has been decided that a flying suit will have to be issued to him

    No, we never did.

    We didn't manage one for pilot either.
