When they realised what they'd done you would have thought they would have reshot the box art so they were all travelling in the same direction.

Don't forget the 'Odd Rods' IFF aerials on the nose somewhere, if it has a 'nose' of course.  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

By co-incidence the Horror Channel here in the UK are running the Original Series of Star Trek, and the two episodes of the show that introduced me as youngster to the idea of Alternate Timelines/Universes have beenon/are due on:- City on the Edge of Forever [shown yesterday] and Mirror, Mirror [showing next Thursday]. They also have The Doomsday Machine coming up

I found it being shown here the other day.  Trouble with Tribbles.  Possibly my favourite episode.  That and Arena.

Good work on предприятие
