. Following our article re the lap top in Scotland UK, Doug Davidson sends
this infomation -
Re lap-tops in U.K.
The adaptor for American phone jack to British phone jack is readily
available in Radio Shack stores over there, and probably others too, so you
won't get stuck.
The other thing to know in this technological age is that the pound key on
a British phone does not work.  They tell you it does, and I have phoned BT
three times on the subject.  I'm telling you it doesn't work. How odd.
British pounds don't work.
Cheers!   Doug Davidson <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

BAHAMAS BOUND, THE EASY WAY:
In an effort to get more GA pilots to visit their beautiful island, the
government of the Bahamas has issued what they're calling a "Private Pilots
Bill of Rights."  As incentive  there will be:
no landing fees, no overtime customs fees, no departure tax,
no tie down fees, no problem!
So get your sunscreen, your swimsuit and your credit card and make like a
tourist, mon.

Pilot:
"Airplane XXX is over [fix] and we almost have the field in sight."
ATC:
"Roger XXX, you are almost cleared for visual approach to runway 19."

Myron Olson sends us this -
Subject: Definition of high altitude flying?
That is when you on an aircraft with a window seat; and as you observe
the ground falling away and flying directly over all your relatives,
deduce that all your uncles look like a(u)nts that is high altitude
flight!
