Almost Shakespearean...

If I bung on my worst Sir Larry accent I can make this panel sound like something from Shakespeare. Just think Henry V and give it a go. So man-up don the tights and strut upon life's stage. Try it and you'll see.

Tiger Tank Profile Number 3

The 3rd installment of Tiger Tank Profile brings us  a pair of Tigers from Air Ace Picture Library number 276, Komet's Prey, published in January 1966. These brutes appear to like nothing better than to trundle around finding upside down aircraft to shoot up. Needless to say the Tigers move very quickly from being vicious perpetrators to hapless targets.

A man in a bubble called Malcolm.

Hey bubble man! Three miles! Up two thousand feet! Sounds like a lyric from a drug fueled Hendrix riffing tribute band or a lost lyric from a late Beatles unrecorded album. Man! Malcolm is in the bubble man. He is the bubble man. In the astrodome closer to heaven. 

Malcolm appears to either be in shock or is in a state of never ending calm. Maybe Malcolm can see that he is not just in a bubble but under a sea of lyrics and comments.

The biggest...

Isn't it always the way? Just when you are about to embark on some very important decision making somebody from head office has to stick their paw in. Can't you see I've got arrows and markers and a map with a big grid to deal with? Can't you people wait? And it's not like they ever call just to say 'hello' or 'how are things going?' It's always urgent. Urgent urgent urgent. I hate those guys.

Good Management

People never understand how hard it is to be the boss. Finding good employees is always a constant struggle. Sometimes speaking to your staff in harsh tones is the only language they will understand. This is not being cruel. This is not being insensitive. This is love. This is understanding. So the next time your boss calls you an imbecile or something similar don't despair. Your boss is not questioning your mental capacity or your ability. Your boss only has your best interests at heart and only looking to bring out the best in you. So stop blaming your equipment and stop feeling sorry for yourself. Thank your boss for their sincerity and love.

Just Beautiful!

I don't believe my scan of this panel does the original artwork any justice. Just look at that shading and detail! The way the ink hits the paper is just beautiful. I understand the artist is Ian Kennedy. Anybody who can make a ME 110 look this good is truly an artist and a genius.

I get drunk...

...and dream that I see little men with sticks. It is the strangest dream. It is like being in a dark foreboding version of the Willy Wonka factory. But I am not Willy Wonka. But in this dream the little men are still there. They do not sing. They do not dance. Yet they are earnest and involved in their activities. In this dream other people make me want to do things and say things I do not understand.

Maybe I should stay away from strong drink. That should stop the dreams. But if I do that I'll never get to finish that report.

Men called Keith...

...are always undaunted. This is a fact. Have you ever met a Keith who was daunted? Sounds ridiculous. Because it is! Their choice of music may be under some suspicion of course, but that is a minor detail in the great scheme of things. When you're miles from where you should be with only one engine and whole countryside of people trying to stop you one thing is for certain. You're going to be in a much better position if you're travelling with a Keith.

So many words...

I picked up a new comic book yesterday. The paucity of prose was pathetic. There are more words in this one panel then there were words in the that entire publication. No doubt there is something that I don't understand. There's a point that I'm clearly missing. Surely. I'm not saying the story I quickly thumbed through was any less valid or interesting. However to miss out on the  beauty of words is a crime.

Now the navigator's bought it... are we going to find our way now? Regrettable as that is for the navigator and no doubt for the mission the plane will keep on flying. So Skipper what are you going to do? Perhaps problem solving and decision making would have been a whole lot easier if the flak fragment removed the aircraft from the war making paradigm instead of concentrating on limiting the options it gave to its only recipient.

This is not the time to listen to the urgent cries of others. Don't forget you have more to do than fly an aircraft. Remember you are down the front of plane for a reason. Use it.
