I was in Sydney one afternoon last winter, Speed Bird 16 to Singapore had taken off from runway 34L. 10 minutes into flight, Craig Murray starts yelling... "Speed Bird just declared an emergency". Apparently there was indications of a potential cargo fire. The 747-400 returned to <acronym title="Syd...Jump to post

"whine whine whine.... there were legal methods of achieving a Concorde ride which were cheaper than a discount USA transcon, if you wanted to ride it all you need have done is a little research"
Really? I wish I knew. Do tell how you managed to get such a cheap flight on the Concorde.

I think its absolute bull shit! If she gets a mountain renamed over her, I think its only logical to do the same for every other single soldier that has been killed in Iraq. Its completely unnecessary to go about renaming mountains like this! Its a nice gesture, but I will still always call it Squaw...Jump to post
