    Hello First Officer,,,fungus
    You may recall the words of the first pilot to fly the Spitfire, I shamefully cannot bring his name to mind , but also the words of anyone who appreciates great designs whether it be the beautiful graceful savage lines of the Spitfire or the Jag Etype or Concord or Mallard ,,if it looks right it genrally is right,,,well those words dont apply to the B52 , it doesnt look as if it should fly at all , the massive eight engined destroyer of worlds even takes off with the same nose down attitude of ,,,a Helicopter, but as a big hitter it is second to none ,it is apparently to retire in2025, one of the Greatest ever.Des
