  •  I won't make Oshkosh... (7+ / 0-)

    ... as all my leave gets 'blown' in a massive European trip each year. This year the Chairman of the People's Mosquito Trust and I had a pivotal 2 hour meeting with FIVE Heads of Department at the CAA Safety Regulations Group (including Structures, and the Chief Materials Scientist), to argue the engineering plan for the Mosquito. John gave a lovely intro, then I handed over a five page outline and we spoke to it.....we won!!

    When I last went to Oshkosh I was asked for everything from Chipmunk canopies to Dove spares!
