Safety in the USA?

Hi All, especially you Members in the USA. Would anyone care to share their thoughts and observations on the local situation regarding the Presidential installation?

Re: Bitzer project

I have to come clean and correct 'Airspeed'. I was given a tick and an award for the DH Flamingo but my guess was so far off the mark I should have been booked. However I did come in rather early with the Avro Ashton but got left out on the awards. Swings and roundabouts. :) :cheers: Mick Wood Er-h...

Re: Bitzer project
