... well it will be interesting to see if you get any other response to this... Personally (and I'm likely repeating myself here - old age an drink I blame) I don't like humour very much as often as it's at someone else's expense (if not always).  Let us know if you reflect on this ....  Evil or Very Mad  Very Happy  Twisted Evil

I agree with Steve - bad taste. Would you repeat this in front of the parents of those involved, Ghiro?

To be honest Hazy, I did see the humour (black as it is - are you allowed that term these days.. ) as I see so many Italians in their cars on their mobiles driving one handed around hairpins on the wrong side of the road). However I also thought about the other side of the coin as well.

actually this is the fifth similar incident concerning Tornados in a couple of years...the others were in Germany (ontheir phones?) and the others in the UK (looking at facebook?) it appears (they say) that their could be a /some problems with this aeroplane.....but dare we say the RAF were on their phones?
