I know, I know, I was very slack about judging it cos I drifted away for a while. I'll dig the original thread out of the archives and solicit opinion. One reason I never did so at the time was cos I was expecting only a few takers, but there was something like 37 poems written about this site! So everyone who entered gets a postcard from my enormous collection of vintage postcards, and the overall winner also gets the airline disaster novel "Collision" which stars a medically unfit 707 captain who collides with a DC8 over Toronto.
By the way, thanks to everyone who had a go, it was just a thing I thought of when I picked up the spare copy of the book. The entries were really cool: "I'll surf instead of study / And fail my exams, I bet / But how could I stay mad at you / Airliners.net?" Yes!
