Re: "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told"

Sounds like a case of deciding all these figures were LGBT based on a desire to make them fit in with a wider agenda.

Are the producers also LGBT.

Re: Oscar Can't Get Parts for UA's 747s?

As said by others no shortage of parked B747-400's.

In the last year at least 6 BA/SV just at Kemble.

Must be some useable parts on parked aircraft.

Re: Trump considering options for Syria retaliation!

Question for Assad is how much has he to gain by using Sarin as opposed to other weapons.

Furthermore, he may not have much Sarin left.

Also will Putin supply more MIG23's.

Re: Terrified of flying

Two points I would make; 1. What you feel is merely a more extreme version of the feelings of many people. Man can not fly, he has no wings. Therefore we are out of our comfort zone. 2. Try looking at aviation-safety.net and check Alitalia. Sounds daft looking at info on incidents, but now check how...
