Great pic of the Orph' sitting where is should. Not to be excluded I notice that even Henry the Hoover has his eye on the camera! :mrgreen:

Hi folks,

not to be nagging, but is there any chance of a next instalment of the Diary?

I appreciate you have been busy and the POTD is great, but another enjoyable read/rant would be great.

(am I allowed to ask about the plane situation too?)

Thanks,

Funnily enough I've been writing a diary piece for the past few weeks so that won't be long and the plane is as it was - they canned their own project, told a pack of hideous lies then tried to save face by doing it themselves, which isn't really happening.

Seems the Twitterers and a few others got their collective knickers in a twist over the latest rant. Result!
When will they ever learn that I only do it to wind them up? Let's hope they get so annoyed they twatter it all over creation so we do trending and stuff...
I mean - who the hell would ever want to eat badger stew? :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's too chewy and gives me a nasty cough.
Interesting, just found a website with a badger stew recipe. Apparently after skinning and gutting it needs placing in a fast flowing river for 48 hours to de-grease it. Who knew?
Wonder how many badgers it took to find out 48 hours was the key.

In the diary it tells us this, '.

The AFRC spills servo pressure causing the piston pump to de-stroke until the engine catches up at which point it restores the servo pressure and off you go. But we’d never managed to get ours set up so it wouldn’t over-temp the engine on slam-accelerations'.

Now I don't know about jet engines (but I'm reading the diaries closely) ...but with the over-temp does that mean it's running too lean on this set up and you'd need to 'up' the kero (stroking the piston up slightly?) because you can't or don't want to slow down the turbine pick-up?

Thanks in advance. Bp.
