As the blog war has resulted in a dearth of air news, unless you are happy to flog over to Zentelligence to see how Simon is getting on with twin engines, I thought readers might like to have an artist's impression of the new Peking (sorry, Beijing) Airport courtesy of The Daily T. Let alone making Manston International seem small, this monster of air travel can fit all 5 terminals at Heathrow in and is 1.8 miles long.
The first international flight into it will be a British Airways plane followed, I hope, by me in my Sopwith. The chaps are replacing the elastic bands as I write and I am doing some hard study of my Daily Mail Inflatable Globe and have dusted off the old prismatic compass and have spent most of the past 12 months studying the film 'Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines' for good ideas to get me there in one piece; not too happy with the 'down diddly down down' bit though.
The ' News from the Front' in regards to the 'Thanet Blog War' is quite sparce. Tony Flaig is clearly jarred off with it all and OVIT and ECR are in their bunkers with filter systems running full pelt. Simon Moores is still busy on Zentelligence telling readers about ID cards and showing a clip about his mate Simon who had the British Goverment, no less, snooping around his dhobi looking for any 'skid-marks'. I couldn't work out which Simon was making the real point about having their dhobi from the past being examined, it all seemed rather Freudian.
According to the DT, that nice chap in the USA, Barak Obama, is having similar problems with Hilary's lot sniffing around his dhobi and dragging up quotes from his past. Nothing new under the sun , is there?
