Putting my defend the Scots hat on - and a bonny hat it is too :-)

Kilts are not skirts - they are traditional Highland Dress. Worn with nothing underneath, because they are made of wool and are bl**dy hot!!

Mines a large Single Malt!!

Just check out the movie Braveheart for reference. Definately not a skirt. Though I have heard of an interesting origin of the word.

It seems a young couple were amorously involved in heated passion with in the bonnie lassie's bed chambers, when suddenly on the whispers of a jealous stableboy the lassie's father was heard to be breaking down yon bedroom oaken door.

The young laddie did in haste set to with a bundle of clothes out yon window just as the father broke into the lassie's chamber. In his due haste the young man tried to dress himself at a dead run accross the misty moors. Sudenly he realized (with the masters hounds in hot pursuit) that he had grabbed the wrong pile of garments. He was left with but the lassie"s short shift / half slip and skirt.

Not wanting to cross the moors in not but his skin the laddie did what was expediant but forgot the great Gastonbury Cliffs at the western end of the moors. Needless to say the end was but a long drop to a sad end. The young laddie got kilt. Oh the sad lonely ache of the deprived heart. Barkeep my usual...

Very nice choice! Any hopes of a surprise double feature? Say, the inclusion of "The Aviator"?

Pardon me me Jan ... Does that mean I don't have to buy rounds on my new promotion? It is a shame...I was going to open a cask of 100 year old Jack Daniels. Oh well. Maybe when I make two star?

Your drinks are on the house matey? So does that mean that we have wet your sleeves for the new promotion then, like they did back in the day?
Save your JD for the TWO star promotion when that comes...

Tonight the cafe is rockin! I walked in to the sound of the Disco group "Hot Chocolate " singing "I believe in Miracles...you sexy thing..." Merlin was boogying with his newest lady friend...She looks a lot like Angelina Jolie to me in this light. Jean - Luc wearing platform shoes and bell bottom trousers and his lady were on the floor. Jan "Lucky13" was dressed in a plaid leisure suit with a mystery diva dressed in white satin. Me in my Class A uniform with the new hardware...gad I feel like a stuffed shirt.

The air is thick with nostalgia...and the cook's special burgers and brats wafting from the kitchen. Over in the corner is Ursula and her all girl ground crew... ok time to loosin up. Off comes the Sam Browne...the lights go down.. the sound of "Whats going on?" fill the air...

Hi all,

In between building, working and drinking (coffee ) I found these vid clips on youtube. If you have not seen these they are so cool! Especially if you have never heard what the planes we model actually sound like. And forgive me if this thread is not the place for these, I wasn't sure where I should put them. There are a lot more on youtube than this.

There is a reason why "round" and "sound" go so well together ...

Back in the day...it was said there were two types of pilots... rotary and inline. I am a large fan of torque so its rotary for me. I guess the radials and inlines used in the minor skirmashes that followed the big one (WWI) were alright... But in the end it was the backcracking whine of the jet turbines...kind of like an internalized rotary eh? Waitress...nother round for us please!

Cheers!
So, you win 10 million about $19.6 million. You have done everything mentioned in another thread (What would you do if...) and you decide to buy yourself a flying toy or two.
What do you buy? radial, inline, WWI, WWII, one or two engines?

Jan

Two radial engines - WWII - fancy a guess what!!!

I know where there is one for sale - with both Air and seaworthyness certificates, that may be a bit of a clue.

A snip at 490,000 $US - can you give me clearance to land on the Clyde so's we can go for a joy ride.

Then it's up into the wild blue yonder, and then home for a couple of large ones in the cafe after, whilst the ground crew attend to all of your needs.
