The Top Gear team should do a series of sketches - How simple alternative motoring What If decisions could have changed History ..... Next week - Dallas 1963

Yup but the truly sad thing is that the Archduke's driver had taken the wrong route and was trying to correct it when the assassination happened. The other point of note is that considering he was using a pistol, wasn't trained in firearms use and was extremely nervous he managed to hit anybody let alone kill 2 people with a couple of rounds. Sometimes you have to believe in pre-ordained destiny !!!  :blink:

The Lysander has been purchased. She will be Bulgarian at the time of Balkan War 4. The Greeks are going to get a Hurricane from the same conflict
Decals my @r$e!

Yes, the Archduke should have had a What-if Marconi/balloon-nav, with a suitably deferential manner ...... ;)
