It’s getting closer

Hang up your Chisels and Plane blades and take a load off with a recently turned goblet of your favourite poison, in the lounge of our Gentlemen's (and ladies) Club.

Just give them a choice, wear a mask or wear a parachute? Simples!

Not good enough. Once the aircraft is established in the climb, the autopilot will be on and there will probably be no human intervention until they are well into the final descent. The captain should require the cabin manager to report if there is any failure of passengers to comply with repeated instructions - particularly in a Covid world - and issue his/her own instructions. The buck stops at the lefthand seat in the cockpit, but I would also be hauling the cabin manager over the coals for ineffective leadership of the cabin staff and failing to ensure passengers follow instructions repeatedly given.

It's our turn for the NHS Spitfire today. In theory. Low cloud may prevent it from flying our way.

Lovely shots of Hurricanes and Spitfires on the TV yesterday, to mark “the longest day”.

I already report to a survey being carried out by several bodies including UCL.
Have now been asked to take part in another one where I supply a test sample

I volunteered for vaccination testing via Southampton university hospital but apart from an acknowledgement, I've heard nought.
As I'm in a vulnerable group (diabetes, asthma & Barratts) they might not want me?

Mission Control has been selected at random by NHS for Covid-19 in-home antibody testing research follow-up study, undertaken through Ipsos MORI?Imperial College London.

She pricked her finger and did the test and posted it off this morning.

Mine too. Spent this morning deciphering the instructions. Result showed no antibodies which is hardly surprising.

Well the one my wife is doing isn't an antibody test. It's testing to see whether or not she has the bug now.
