    Given that the link is dated 2001, I suggest this thread is not exactly current, and hence is moving to the gash barge.

    I was in a rush with the link as I saw it this afternoon on BBC News, then the Japan earthquake took over. I'll dig it out. :)

    As you well know, it may take a little time to filter any new development proposals to the lower decks!

    Jeez!

    Ah well. Can't find a link. The upshot is that EADS have asked for a rescue package for the air-tanker (A400?) And MoD have agreed to 22 instead of 25 aircraft. If I can find a link that is current I'll post it. I know I wasn't dreaming. :)

    Dreaming of currents? Not a fruitcake are you?

    Why do I always find myself on the Gash Barge??
