AND FINALLY: Lady pilots

It happened a long time ago. 

Lotus Cars chartered a Britten Norman Islander to take a small press group from Elstree Aerodrome in north London to the factory at Hethel, Norfolk.

“Nice stewardesses Lotus employ,” said one elderly hack to another as she made sure his seat belt was tightened.
