A very pleasant day out, Leicester continues to be a very amicable and accommodating place.

Needed recurrent circuits for me and the other pilot in the PC-12, did a deal for 6 circuits - thank you, we stayed a bit higher and a little further outside the avoid paces and it worked splendidly.

Mo was away on his jollies, however the crew did spot on sarnies as ever.

Get some tea pots.... a small mug is never enough for us Yarksheer Tykes !

Visit, they are V friendly :thumleft:

Always wondered why Slough is pronounced sss-lau yet loughborough is luff bor uh. Shouldn't, therefore, Slough be pronounced sluff? Or perhaps Loughborough needs to be named Lau-Bor-au?

There are at least seven different ways that ‘ough’ can be pronounced, ergo at least forty-nine for Loughborough!

A college friend was riding in an elevator on a US university campus. He was wearing a Loughborough University rugby shirt. A young lady stared at the logo for a while, and then said with triumph "Ah, I get it, 'lowbrow' " :)

It ought to be easy, though if you want to be thorough it can be tough to plough through all the combinations, especially if you have a cough.

I have always taken issue (though not personally) with Sean Bean and Lady Bader for rampant inconsistency
