Taff as engineers we all learnt the art of hangar sweeping and its good to see you are still the master of the broom. A few of the younger lads now days need to learn the art but everyone is just to busy. It was nice a master at work who hasn't lost the touch. :D

Yeah, but it's a shame there's all that matt black ally where the instruments used to be.

And it's even worse for the guy(s) in the back - nothing to fiddle with at all. :p

I must add that the internal photos where taken with my camera but not by me. Thanks goes to Taff and John H for letting my camera onboard.
