Gertrude comes to Grief

5 Oct

Well almost…007It was the sudden, sharp burst of reverse thrust that alerted me to this one.

A close shave; poor old Gerty’s chimney nearly getting a headache – or worse.

And this is precisely why Hobo has a pre-flight checklist – chimney off, aerial down etc etc – not at all influenced by John the pilot’s strict discipline.

No, because we (too busy looking at the scenery/too drunk chilled) might not spot the impending collision in time, like these good folks did, and do some real damage.
