OUR READERS' FINEST WORDS (All times and dates are GMT)

All comments are filtered to exclude any excesses but the Editor does not have to agree with what is being said. 100 words maximum

Michael carrivick,

Knowing how strict the judging was last year on the name of an airline, then Q15 is Mango Airlines, not Airways. Again, a good test with some elephant traps!

Simon Grigor, Harrow

Fully appreciate 'editor's decision is final' but I don't think the answer given at 11(a) is the aircraft type, which was what we were requested to state. (For what it's worth I think it's a Moynet M360 Jupiter). Hugely enjoyable quiz once again.
