Hey! That was about the same as coming in on a 737 from Houston to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. They did some tight turning to position through mountains to land. 45 Degree turns or more it seemed. It was a lot of fun. Got thrown around a bunch, made for a very interesting flight in.

Was slightly depressed we didn't have to do the same when we took off...though with over 3/4 of my missions team sick that may have been a good thing...

Anyway, that was really cool! Good

Apparently someone is in the throws of recreating the Handley Page HP42...


Consider it officially added to the list of potential Jethro+Monty transportation.

I wonder if that's the same team that did the 1994 replica of the Vickers Vimy and recreated several historic long distance flights with it.

I remember that plane... no idea if it's the same people though.

And speaking of things suitable for Monty transport duties: Qantas today released the first pictures of it's new retro-liveried 737-800:


Dear Qantas, paint them all like that...

...maybe if I bribe Kisk with enough gin he can work some magic on that end.

Apparently it is indeed the same people.

Monty: Well, next time we need to get to Egypt...


Kara: I think I saw that in a movie once...

Michele is a big fan of that film, so Kara indeed has seen that once in a movie. Smile

Well, there is that possibility as well. To be honest, it was more meant as a snide comment on Kara's part regarding what Monty considers an acceptable form of air-transport.  Razz

Italy's newest ride:



An Airbus A340-541 previously operated as A6-EHA and flown by Etihad Airways. Leased to the Aeronautica Militare where it will be re-registered as I-TALY.

Kara: Finally a real ride. Those A319CJs were too small for my tastes.

Monty: "More like too small to haul back all her shopping."

Kara: "I heard that!"

Filed to "Jethro+Monty fodder" (also under "why was I not told about this sooner")....


Aerion Supersonic


Seriously though: tri-jet, supersonic civilian transport, remind me what decade we're in again? All it needs is swing wings and we'd be just about in a Tintin comic.

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.

Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.

Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.
