    But we have nowhere to park them.....
    I'm wondering what costly upgrades were required to keep them in service until 2035. The negativity around the A400 is questionable. Interesting how the official document mentions refers to them as C130J and A400 instead of the official RAF titles of C4 & C5 for Herk J and Atlas C1 for the A400.
    I recon the "Military source" quoted was someone on ARRSE.
    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

    It is the Mail. Even Wiki banned using it as a reference.
    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    Reading between the lines I think the Daily Fail is insinuating Airbus = EU = Spawn of the Devil.
    It was the year of fire...the year of destruction...the year we took back what was ours.
    It was the year of rebirth...the year of great sadness...the year of pain...and the year of joy.
    It was a new age...It was the end of history.
    It was the year everything changed.
