Only seems like yesterday that 100 posts was a landmark :). Well done Gaz ;) (I was tempted to cruelly steal your glory :D )

This might not be the highest number of posts on an aviation website - but I bet they are of a higher quality than most of the others.

Well done to all concerned :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

I saw how many posts Gaz had made and initially wondered whether it was jetlag that he was suffering from or the need to make 200000! :p

WELL DONE Gaz! :ymapplause:

You missed my point, Gaz made a load of posts one after another hence my comment about jetlag! :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p

No, you missed my point. Gaz's postings looked exactly like the usual morning posting barrage only with a different name.

Your post brought pots and kettles came to mind. :p

OK Eric I'll put it in simple terms, I know that's my usual BARRAGE type of posting, I was aluding to the possibility that Gaz may have been suffering from JETLAG or trying to get the 200000th post! ~x(

I am genuinly pleased that ICONIC AIRCRAFT has reached this momentous post count :ymapplause: :ymapplause: and very pleased that it was Gaz that posted it! :ymapplause: :ymapplause:


Can't find the POPCORN Smilie! :p

Actually, the TIME DELAY between posting
and having it show up in the totals makes
it a crap shoot whether or not you can hit
it on the nose!!!!!!!!

You can't plan it, it just has to "Happen".....

SOMEHOW, I completely missed this! :D

Truth is, I spotted that it was only, about, 6 posts short, so, I let fly with an XPL style barrage. Oli (If I recall) tried his best to pinch it though :D









Oh, and everyone who mentioned my tan.....
