A neat Vee formation of 8 or 10 whooper swans just flew past the old brick wall factory, turned into office building.

They were heading west along a lakeside ridgeline - but are surely planning to turn south at some point.

Do they make complete walls or only parts of walls or are they just making antique walls at that factory?  ;)
I should probably reconsider my sentence structure. When I get a round tuit.

There was, it crashed!
"""
Probable Cause

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's failure to maintain airspeed following an engine anomaly during the initial climb after takeoff, which resulted in the airplane exceeding its critical angle of attack and experiencing an aerodynamic stall. Contributing to the accident was an engine anomaly, the reason for which could not be identified during postaccident examination.
...
We know from the investigation by the Le RÍve Blue team, that the engine anomaly in question was clutch slippage, apparently a conclusion which the NTSB does not want to publish (Maybe lack of factual proof?).

Well, I think it doesn't print at a high enough resolution.  I've tried tricking it into pouring more ink into the print job by telling it I'm using photopaper, but it refuses to believe me.  So, despite "high quality" settings, the default for "regular paper" seems to be lacking.  The final product seems rather grainy, no matter how high the resolution the image I'm printing (and I've tried from standard 300dpi to very high 1200dpi...)

Picked up an old 1/72 Airfix Spitfire Mk.IX. I love Spits and Hurris more than 'Stangs, and I genuinely wonder why...

If I ever get a Boeing 727-100, I'm doing it as the D.B. Cooper Hijacking aircraft of Northwest Orient Airlines.

What areas of quality does your Canon inkjet lack in Greg? It may be the software too of course, they need to 'mix and match' to produce I good result.
