Are they a special unit or corporation? Have they a special name? Are they for royal family only or for gov too?
Will die without understanding this world.

They used belong to an RAF unit called The Royal Flight and were paid for by the government, however it's all changed in recent years. Good summary here:

Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

And whatever you do, DON'T read the 'Talk' tab on the Wiki page!

What a total lot of claptrap some of those guys talk.  :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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