Simon Grigor, United Kingdom

Indeed Angela, another super quiz, and for the second year running especially nice to have something fun and brain-taxing to keep us (very!) occupied when there were either restrictions (2019) or reluctance (2020) on family and friends gathering together at Christmas. Thank you so much Rod Simpson and the team. Before the adjudicators get to work on our exam papers (!), a couple of specific comments on what we are reading this morning: I have my doubts about the answer given today to Q.20 - that is certainly not an Ibis Ae270; the 'what engines' question has mysteriously switched from Q.25 to Q.26; and I would note also that (and it seemed odd at the time) we were asked about the aircraft operator at Q.30, not what type it is.


Angela Smith, St Albans

Well done Mr Simpson. You kept a whole family of aircraft nuts busy over the Christmas period, even Grandpa whose memory is not good but knows all about the Handley Page Herald and still lives at Radlett.
