Hey dude, I <acronym title="Air Vallee (Italy)">DO</acronym> respect the Koru and all it stands for but your claim to being calm about this just isn't getting across! The Maori representation of the Koru doesn't have defined dimensions or proportions, making it shorter by the tail is no more or less...

RE: Why Is NZ's Koru In Such Bad Shape?

Are you sure? last time i saw NBU (this year) it had the wave still in place, apart from the bits missing at the bottom on the right-hand side.

I emigrated on NBU and take a special interest. Correct me if I am wrong.

I see where you are coming from mate! and I'm sober! You did say "mother and daughter" well, my daughter looks LIKE her mother, you can see the family resemblance but some bits are different (she has my nose).

This post is sure to go all A vs B on you!

Getting Sucked In While Flushing The Plane Toilet?

If you're interested, the "suction bottom" thing can happen on certain types of yacht loos as they don't all have a cut out on the rim.

Very handy in rough weather!!!!

RE: Monarch A340 In The 90's

Thanks for this, just goes to show how easy it is for Joe Public to get his planes mixed up.

When I first moved to NZ I thought 767's were "long wheelbase" 737's.

Ho hum, I know better now!!!
