    It's the Blackburn Botha, a failed design for a torpedo bomber. Underpowered and unstable in flight it was quickly dropped from frontline service into training command where it did what it did best, killing many sprog crews.

    I'm sure Tom won't mind if I carry on without his nod, it's late out on the veldt right now!
