 and if so; what does a Chinook's nest look like?


Like this.  ;D



RAF Odiham, the Chinook's base.
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! :)

On a more serious note, No.1 son and family live  almost underneath the glide-path for Southampton Airport; they tell me that since Flybe have gone into administration  there's a lot less activity seen over their house

I think they were responsible for 80% or so of flights in and out. Some regional airports it was nearer, perhaps even, 100%.
Decals my @r$e!

My sister's hubby was stationed there during the 70's, I used to visit them quite often.

A Pied Butcher Bird paid us a visit today while Mrs z was gardening.  While I watched it it caught a small lizard.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.
