Oh dear. This report was originally titled 19-Oct-2013. It actually relates to the 18th. Smiley You’ve got to hand it to Bangladesh Airlines. They may not be the world’s favourite airline but they certainly liven up the airports they visit. Earlier this year we had this and then at the start of the week we had this and today … Continue reading »

Earthrounders

Seltar: 16-Oct-2013. You may, but probably don’t, know of a website called earthrounders.com. It’s a resource site for people who want to fly around the world in their aircraft.
