Just spotted this on another forum I belong to, you might not want to show it to your other half.....


RULES of the AIR:
1. Every take-off is option. Every landing is mandatory;
2. If you push the stick forward the houses get bigger, if you pull the stick back they get smaller, if you keep pulling it back they get bigger again;
3. Flying isn't dangerous - crashing is dangerous;
4. It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there, than up there wishing you were down here;
5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire;
6. The propellor is just a big fan at the front of the plane to keep the pilot cool, when it stops you can actually see the pilot begin to sweat;
7. When in doubt, on onto your altitude, no one ever colided with the sky;
8. A good landing is when you can walk away, a great one is when you can use the plane again;
9. Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make them all yourself;
10. You know if you've forgotten to lower the undercart for landing if it takes full power to taxi to the apron;
11. The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival:
12. Never let the plane take you to where your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier;
13. Stay out of clouds, the silver lining might be another aeroplane coming the other way. Also mountains have been known to hide in clouds;
14. Try to keep the number of landings you've made equal to the number of take-offs you've made;
15. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing - unfortunately no-one knows what they are;
16. You start with a full tank of luck and an empty tank of experience - the trick is to fill the later before the former runs dry;
17. Helicopters can't fly, they're just so ugly the earth repels them;
18. If all you can see is the earth going round and round, and all you can hear is commotion from the passengers, things are not going as well as they should be;
19. In the on-going battle between hurtling pieces of aluminium and static ground, the ground has yet to lose;
20. Good judgement comes from experience. Unfortunately the experience usually comes from bad judgement;
21. it's always a good idea to keep the pointy bit going forward as much as possible;
22. Keep looking around, there's always something you've missed;
23. Remember, gravity is not just a good idea, it's the law, and it's not subject to repeal;
24. The three most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above you, the runway behind you and a tenth of a second ago.

Finally, I'd like to die in my sleep like my father, not screaming in terror like his passengers...

Couldn't someone squeeze her into a car of somesort for the trip down?  Or is she a nervous passenger too Grin

We're travelling down from Oxford for the 07:00 Eurotunnel on the 16th, and if she's not tooooo tall we could squeeze her into the back of the Aston, if you are based somewhere near our route, of coourse. Tongue

You could always buy your merchandise in advance from www.astonmartinracingcollection.com as I doubt that the pricing will be the same as at Classic Le Mans last year where the Euro prices were about 20% cheaper than UK prices on the Aston merchandise stand!  They were the cheapest there by a long way, and were practically sold out by Sunday lunchtime.
728  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re:Who is coming to Silverstone??? on: May 06, 2005, 02:24:52 pm
There is a timetable on the BRDC website,
Here's a direct link to it, http://www.brdc.co.uk/cbb_files/WTC%20Silverstone%20Detailed%20Timetable%20Version%203.doc

I'm one of those people who like to have their tickets early, saves on the hassle at the circuit, but I buy mine direct from the ACO (I'm a member) along with a parking permit.  Anyone can buy the direct, so why do they buy from sharks at over the odds prices?  Maybe they just don't know they can buy direct, or maybe they get carried away by ebay......  
At the end of the day its not ebays fault that mug punters want to pay inflated prices.....
730  Club Arnage / Just To Say Hi / Hellooooo on: March 09, 2005, 02:22:38 pm
What is it with LM, it just gets under your skin, you know you should go but don't know why, and once you've been you just can't stop going!

I do classic as well, completely different event, but a great excuse to go to LM!

Great site, great source of info.

Has anyway spotted that some crook is trying to flog General Admission tickets for 50 each on ebay,  so far no ones bought them....
731  Club Arnage / Help / Re:Ferries on: March 09, 2005, 02:10:56 pm
Cracking Price,  but past experiences with cats with hoverspeed means that I won't use them as they pack the cars on far tooooo close together, so unless you have a car you don't care about be carefull as there is always a danger of it getting damaged.....

Personally, I'm booked on EuroTunnel, althought they may be dearer the cost differential is reduced by less driving than Dover-Calais, and with the Aston only doing 13 to the gallon it soon adds up!
732  Club Arnage / Help / Ferries on: February 28, 2005, 10:55:19 pm
If you've not yet booked your ferry then this website is doing P&O Dover Calais for 60 return,  Its not on all sailings, but the ones I looked at did in fact come out at 60, So its not the usual marketing "prices from" deal that you can never seem to be able to get!
Almost forgot the url....

The link is http://www.aferry.to/service/AFRYspecialoffersPOPF.htm
or just www.aferry.to and follow the link from the home page....
733  Club Arnage / Help / Hotel room available on: July 19, 2004, 02:57:13 pm
Due to some friends being unable to make the trip I have a reservation for a double room at a hotel 5 mins from the circuit (other side of the airfield) going spare.

Its 67euros (plus 7 for breakfast) and is booked from thursday (22/7) through to sunday(25/7) (inclusive) so 4 nights,  so if like me you are too old to camp and left it too late to find a reasonable hotel then this is a last minute opportunity.  

Drop me an email and I'll forward a link with the hotel details and if you are interested I'll change the spare room to your name.
