Some years ago I attended the CAM Chrissie party with Al, Harold and a crew of older chaps who worked there during the year. Damn nice lunch and the entertainment was Al an Dad hanging poo on each other, good stuuf
Later in the afternoon I snuck out for a bunger and was approached by a chap dressed in a very nice flying jacket with all sorts of surplus store patches (the rip off versions not the been there done that real ones)
This chap demanded to see Al as he was the carrier of some truely world shattering news of aviation interest. I conveyed his message to Alan who glared at me over his glasses and asked me to tell the aforementioned gent to sod off. I expressed dismay that we might miss out on something cool and I did have to endure the wrath of Al as apparently I are a idiot for doubting him and not carrying out his instructions forthwith.
So duley chastised I told the gent that no he couldnt see his holiness to please bugger of smartly.
The gent proceeded to not bugger off and to share his secret with me, but not before he had a good ole look at my boobs which just proved what a toad he was!
His tale began with the story of a farmer in darkest germany driving his tractor down a hole in his fields. This gent and his brave chums heard of the vanishing tractor and had daringly offered to probe the depths to see what lay there.
(regular readers of Clive Cussler should skip to the end now)
After heroically disarming poison gas booby traps they discovered a long lost squadron of ME-262's left in a secret bunker.
Now he was looking for interested parties to help him fund the recovery and restoration.
That was enough even for gullible me so I wandered back inside.
Probably sod all to do with the original thread just my experience with some of the wankers that hang around old aeroplanes.
For those that arent fans of Mr Cussler this entire story was tea leafed from the the book "Dragon" Perhaps my friend didnt think anybody else had read it!
