Cor, i would rather be on a 20' boat in a six, at least i can jump over and have a soft landing. :)

shame on the trust for being party to dragging  the rsa into the failed cfp, because they can sniff funding.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.

 

Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.

 

Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.

 

new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them?

its common practice for pilots to yaw like that just before landing in high winds. then they bring it straight just before it hits the deck. im not sure its meant to wobble about the runway like that though :D

I worked in the oil industry many years ago we were on a shell chartered fix wing flight from shetland to aberdeen did a lot of flying in planes and choppers in those days but not one like this from the minute we took off from sumburgh in shetland the plane was all over the place we were in the middle of a very deep low presure the shower clouds were hugh when we came to land at aberdeen we were weavering all over the place as we made our approach there was 49 white knuckle oil workes on that flight it was a force 10 cross wind at aberdeen airport they closed the airport after we landed not a nice experience i decide enough was enough and went back into chartering that was 20 years ago.

It looks like a rare bit of fun to me.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Scary. :lol:

I fly quite often, sometimes up to 20 international flights a year, but in all the years doing this have only had one "incident". That was at Alicante in an old Olympic airways 737, that was leased to a different airline. It was ancient.

As we were powering up to go, there was a bang from the left engine and it stopped. We rumbled back to the terminal and were delayed for 19 hours till they found another plane from somewhere.

The pilot came out from the cabin when the airbridge was being connected, and just smiled and said "Sorry, but at least it went bang before we took off!"

It caused a laugh anyway. :lol:

Hasn't put me off at all though.

Not really, i know it is pretty safe overall, and there is really no alternative to many places.

I see the BBC have now picked up on the original video clip now... :P :P
