You are right and as Andy Mcnab once said, the SAS motto shouldn't be "he
who dears, wins" it should be "he who prepares wins" Prep is the best way to
do things, building websites, coding something, building something. Unless I
am doing a bit of fun fling, I generally plan everything now, even bush
flying (general directions and not exact of course, where is the fun in that
;) )

Just a rambling thought on this ;

This is a double edge sword really when it comes to flying. Planning is
essential it's true, and there's little place in flying for those who
don't plan ahead......BUT....and this is a HUGE but........the other
side of that sword edge is every bit as important as the ability to
plan. That other edge is the ability to adapt a plan if required and be
able to deal with the change if and when something unforeseen takes
place.
It's the variables in flying that will kill you, and the ability to
remain flexible while at the same time working a solid and competent
plan that will keep you alive to enjoy all the fun.

Nah! Just a play on paraphrasing and a bit of literary license thrown in

You're right Quilly!!! :-) Must be those damn blood tests I've been
taking lately.......or my fingers need to slow down to my senior moment

Just keep one thing in mind whenever I do this will ya? Remember, if you
put a chimp in front of a typewriter, sooner or later he's gonna write

Just watched the tail end of a Discovery Channel show in which a couple of
AA pilots hit the wrong buttons on an FMC and went heading off 120 degrees
in the wrong direction in South America. Didn't have a clue where they were,
but never went off auto pilot. Meanwhile the 757 was in descent, dragging
some flaps. They tried to climb to avoid terrain, but the drag prevented it
and they went in. The commentating pros said they should have taken over
from the FMC and flown the darned plane. Sounds reasonable.

Chris,

Was Andy McNab wearing a rather fetching set of pink combat trousers and
gold earrings when he made the comments about the "dears".

I have forwarded your comments to a group of blokes in Hereford UK who are
most interested in them. I'm sure they will take your word for it that it
was a simple typo after they've put you through 72 hours of sleep
deprivation and some general humiliation.

Sorry couldn't dare to resist.

Geoff

so I can finally write something decent here?? :-)))

Quilly,

You'll have me posting pics of my time in the Royal Signals at this rate. I
even managed to get some C130 refuelling shots over the South Atlantic which
would keep me on theme.

Your dates make me feel quite young so thanks for that. I wasn't even a
twinkle in my fathers (Unless his long term planning was far better than
mine) in 1960.

Cheers

Geoff
