AND FINALLY: Not the most popular night-stop

A British Airways pilot has come up with this one.

He was overflying Aden (once a British colony), and saw an Aeroflot freighter climbing out.

A heavily accented voice came on the frequency: "Hey, English, you used to have Aden?"

BA: "Yes, we did. Why?"

Aeroflot: "Ve have had to overnight there.

You can have it back!"
