Grumpy old man, and pilot, who seeks nothing more than the occasional accurate flying anecdote and report, and a joke here and there. Hope I will fit in here. Ops-normal was well recommended.

What tales can you offer, OneHungLow?

It seems that most conversations are responses to amusing or controversial posts.

Welcome..... stuck wing or spinny wing?

..or VG wing? ;)))

Perhaps balloons.

Maybe Harriers like BOAC, and doesn't need a wing....

Hovercraft?

Of course you need a wing, Fox - where else would you mount the outriggers?

Welcome!
Nothing new in aviation - behold the "Flying Bedstead", courtesy Rolls-Royce in the 1950s (ample drafts included).

I think the 'hello' to OHL is complete and far enough off-topic =))
