Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

 

“O innocence
Deserving Paradise! If ever, then,
Then had the Sons of God excuse to have been
Enamored at that sight” (5.445-8)


 

 


 

The Skygods are bored??

24 Jan

Comment: Being mischievous here but PAIN is generally speaking boycotting Pprune except for this thread – Norfolk Island Ditching ATSB Report – ? -which we recently brought to life again with this post:- The Skygods are bored?? Apparently the regular Skygod readers had become bored with the Merged: Senate Inquiry thread & therefore the powers to be have decided […]

Weekly wrap 19-26 Jan ’15

24 Jan

This week around the traps was surprisingly busy considering most of Canberra is still in a slumber… The 1st cab off the rank was Oz Flying with – believe it or not – an article titled – ATSB to feel PAIN over Pel-Air Investigation. That’s right PAIN actually made the news… Quote: 19 Jan 2015 […]

Simply Marvellous Horse-pooh (SMH)

24 Jan

Simply Marvellous Horse-pooh (SMH). SMH Quote: SMH: The 57-year-old is helping solve what remains the greatest aviation mystery of all time: the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Back in the day

24 Jan

Back in the day. The commendable last minute Hitch articles in Australian Flying are always worth the time, the last published 23/01/15 very neatly sums up the re opening of the Pel-Air investigation. The analogy of a ‘Fisher King’ wound is apt, but IMO stops just of the approaching the ‘big’ issues, for it will not only […]

The art of discreet distance

23 Jan

The art of discreet distance. I find it amazing that the public image sensibilities of those advertising on the P{p}rune website are so insensitive.  Surely censorship and ‘moderation’ of sensible posts which only ask questions being ‘moderated’ and ‘hits’ being selectively counted, to a fare thee well must raise some advertising eyebrows.  There is a […]

Forget It

23 Jan

Forget it. Your indulgence requested, I am still clumsy with the brand new ‘Blog’ and Twitter toys. P{prune looses more credibility as the Trolls and catamites of ‘vested interest’ move in.  When the Senate Inquiry ‘conversation’ was closed after severe ‘hits editing’ which failed, and was forced to accede (fold) under pressure from those with […]
