There are a couple of similar ones for EZY and VS.
One thing you can say for the French, when civilization falls they have less far to fall than everyone else.

Very useful, Alison - maybe a 'sticky'?

Thanks Woody. Established 1973? I must've been too honked on the wine tour to notice the place in 1994.

I'm not a Snessna fan but I might use that Cherok 180 on a beatup mission as mentioned in TRABB! :)

Not aviation related but this site can provide an interesting insight into the various means of power generation that make up the UK's total requirement. It is interesting to peek in during periods when a large anti-cyclone is parked over the UK. Renewables are not yet the complete answer to our electricity requirements.
