Graham Walker Ltd

Yesterday afternoon I gave G.W. a ring and today an envelope with the parts arrived, the guy in the stores knew straight off the top of his head what i was wanting and that was without any part number. A 400 miles journey in between too. Happy days.

Excellent service.

The last time I saw one of these things in the air was nearly twenty years ago when Air Atlantique used them in oil pollution control. https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://cdn.planespotters.net/photo/431000/original/g-ampo-air-atlantique-atlantic-air-transport-douglas-dc-3_PlanespottersNet_4...

A new cooling discussion

Years ago I was heading down country and after a drive of just over a hundred miles a cheeky Mini nipped past me as I exited a roundabout, stuff that I thought so I stuck it in third and floored it.
