I love this view of the Conways but Gary, I think your memory is starting to go or you're pulling our collective legs when you say "Rolls Royce Conways purring along over Greenland". The Rolls Royce Conways did anything but purr, THEY ROARED and if you were in the last few rows, you could here the inner window liner crackle from the roaring vibrations. Damn, that sweet noise put me to sleep like a baby every time after meal service.
