Re: Isolation and flying.

I'm trying to work from home. Connectivity troubles, can't talk to colleague easily, can't find [paper] files, have to make my own lunch and clean the dishes instead of going to the canteen and now one of the neighbours is having a tree shredded outside seemingly.

Re: BEA retrojet A319 at Zürich (photos)

Do not understand what slf is I think he means "self loading freight", a pejorative term for passengers :poke: :lol: So in his parlance an "slf tube" would be an airliner.

Almost no snow here at all and even where I used to go cross country skiing, I'm not sure if the Langlaufloipe was open for a single day of classic / Nordic style skiing all season. When ...

Re: BEA retrojet A319 at Zürich (photos)

Great shots Toby (as usual) The zoom thing works if they are attached rather than linked, but I’ll have a look over the weekend and see if there is a plugin that can do it and we’ll give it a go. Hi Ben, didn't realise I could attach pics, thought they had to be hosted somewhere, so I always link f...

BEA retrojet A319 at Zürich (photos)

At popular / Paul's request, here's some pictures of the British Airways BEA retrojet, G-EUPJ, that I took on two occasions at ZRH, earlier this year.
