Find it amusing that one decoy chopper is acceptable, so apparently reducing the odds to 50% is good enough.....

And also that the President isn't allowed to fly in the MV-22 Osprey following as its not safe / reliable enough to transport him (hence no white roof). But it's fine for the White House staff, press core and secret service who travel with him....

My thoughts exactly wardie. Now there’s a topic to rant about but it’s political so probably best steer clear.

Going: Evoque TD4. Increasing problems.

Somewhat over engineered as the contents isn't really that important.

I thought the 2" of steel on my old recovery trucks in Northern Ireland were overkill, until you get shot at then they can never be thick enough :lol:

I'd imagine a trump in there is about as welcome as a fart in a space suit...
