Taking the helicopter for a pint is one way of beating the drink driving


#182

now that Kaiser Noonan has restored our economy will it be like Vietnam in the early 70s in the Galway skies the week after next


#183

The Shannon Estuary reaffirming it’s place as the home of Irish aviation, with not one, but two airshows on this month.
There’s a big event in Rineanna tomorrow, with a crowd of 40,000 due to attend.

I’ll probably go for a look across the estuary at it.


#184

What is it with air shows? They have to be the most dangerous public event you can attend (other than a Junior B game in Wicklow), every one seems to have a major disaster attached. 11 people dead so far at this one in England. Mental stuff.


#185

It was the first time a non participant has died at a UK airshow since 1952


#186


#187

Those involved weren’t attending though.


#188

Fitzy has taken some battering here.


#189

Fucking hell, Larry, Moe and Curly have stitched me up good and proper here. For fucks sake.


#190

These shows are lethal . In the last 9 days there has been accidents causing deaths in 3 different airshows.

#192

Is there a worse terminal in Europe than Paris CDG terminal 1?


#193

No. Horrible. Don’t like Vienna either.


#194

CDG is unreal. Dark, gloomy, counterintuitive. No fucking signs and the worst shambolic security I’ve come across.

I’ve only ever been to Vienna by train.


#195

Were you in the circular terminal in CDG? An awful cunt of a place.


#196

Is that the one with the odd elevators?


#197

Yeah. It’s like a science fiction film in there.


#198

That’s the one. Fuck me, but I’m going to Beauvais the next time I go to Paris.


#199

London to Boston today, some pissed up bird tried opening the exit door and they’d to restrain her. :smile:

a pilot blinded last night just after taking off from Heathrow by a laser, the tramps who are responsible for this, should be taken out and horsewhipped
