Gene said: Having seen the accuracy and detail of your Ordinance Survey
maps, I
suspect the charts around the UK are similarly accurate. Is my
suspicion correct?

Generally, when using the correct scale Admiralty chart, I have found them
pretty accurate around England, Scotland and Wales. The West Coast of Eire
and Ireland tend to be fair, The Orkneys and Shetlands are accurate (Lots of
use by Warships). If the N & E offsets are applied to the GPS the electronic
charts are generally good, I once hit a rock that was about 10' from it's
charted position on the way out of Loch Aline using early electronic
charting (C Map ECS, some 20 years ago). I would be exceedingly cautious if
I was in the turning situation V4 was.

Isn't that identity theft?

Hi again Ian et al.

That I could get to work, thanks, it did not solve my problem, but proved
that was not the reason.

Re: That BA plane with it's engine on fire

Shit Happens. It is the engineers fault but having spent time around BAE
people I know they are very safety focused.

I think its a failure in design[1]. Its just easier to blame a grease
monkey.


Jack
[1]the design should be more fail proof. Shouldn't rely on humans to
always get it right. Hence the failures that have happened.

We did hear a report that some dodgy geezer in shorts had been sighted
lurking at Heysham ferry terminal with a caravan and an empty bike
trailer...

We haven't inspected the fairing closely to see who may be intact. It's
currently sitting on the floor in the awning, in several large pieces.

It had already been a suggestion of mine, earlier this evening whilst
talking with one of the other teams, of cutting it into bits and selling
the names for another twenty quid each ;-)
